Four months after nearly being killed in a Palestinian terror near King David’s tomb, attack Liba Ahuva Schreiber and her prematurely-born son David were released from a Jerusalem hospital.

In August, during the third trimester of her pregnancy, the 37-year-old was shot in the stomach by a Palestinian terrorist on Mount Zion, outside Jerusalem’s Old City. The terrorist, Amir Sidawi, opened fire on a bus stop, injuring six people, then walked over to the Schreiber family’s car and shot the mother in front of her husband and children.

Sidawi turned himself in to police the next morning.

Schreiber, a resident of Beitar Illit, was evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where doctors delivered the baby by caesarean.

The mother and baby face continued follow-up care. The family requests the public pray for the recovery of Liba Ahuva Bat Rivka Breindel and Dovid Ben Liba Ahuva.
