Arab Woman Names Newborn Baby after IDF Officer

Thursday, March 31, 2016 |  Israel Today Staff

An Arab woman visiting from Dubai named her newborn son after an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officer this week in a touching demonstration of Israel’s care for its neighbors.
The woman was traveling from Jordan to the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas in Judea and Samaria (the so-called “West Bank”) when she suddenly went into labor.
An IDF officer stationed at the Jordan Valley border crossing immediately administered medical treatment and accompanied the woman to a hospital in nearby Jericho.
After the successful delivery, the woman decided to name the baby “Hadi” after the officer, who is a member of Israel’s Druze minority.
