What a Miracle! Meet The Baby Which Survived After Being Shot Twice By Terrorists Inside A Hospital In Kabul

A baby which was shot twice within the leg during an attack on a Kabul maternity unit which killed 24 people including mothers, nurses and newborns has survived.

Three gunmen, suspected to be members of terror group ISIS, entered the building within the Afghan capital dressed as cops before throwing grenades and opening fire with rifles on Tuesday.

At least two of these shot dead were newborn babies and 15 men, women and youngsters were injured. The attackers were later shot dead. 

But one among the newborns, who was born just three hours before the attack, survived after doctors operated on her shattered right leg, the days reported.

And during the attack, another mother was forced to offer birth in silence while hiding during a room with other pregnant women and a midwife as carnage unfolded around them.

The surviving injured newborn was among several of babies which are taken to be cared for at the Gandhi Children's Hospital in Kabul.

Her mother, Nazia, died within the attack and therefore the newborn was given an equivalent name by her father Rafiullah after he had laid his wife to rest.

Dr Noor ul-Haq Yousafzai, a director at the hospital, told the Times: 'We set Nazia's fracture, so she is going to be ready to walk when she grows up.' 

'But to ascertain a neonate , just three hours old, shot twice. most are shocked. this is often inhuman.'

And the mother who gave birth in silence was helped by a midwife who severed the baby's duct together with her hand. 

'The mother was in pain but was trying to not make any sound,' the midwife said.

'She even put her finger within the newborn baby's mouth to prevent her from crying,' the lady told AFP by phone on Friday, her voice still shaking three days after the attack.

The raid on the Barchi National Hospital has sparked international outrage.

There were 26 mothers within the hospital on the morning gunmen posing as members of the Afghan security forces burst in, said the Doctors borderless charity, which runs the ward .

Eleven of them were killed during the hours-long attack, including three during a delivery room with their newborn babies. Five were wounded.

Another 10 sheltered in 'safe rooms', which are common in Afghanistan and are often armoured to guard the occupants from gunfire or rockets.

The midwife, who spoke to AFP on the condition of anonymity, also rushed to at least one of the safe rooms when the emergency siren went off.

As she and a few of the ladies huddled inside, they might hear gunshots because the attackers went from room to room throughout the hospital.

Then one among the ladies began to offer birth.

'We helped her with our bare hands, we had nothing else within the room except some toilet tissue and our scarves,' the midwife said.

'When the baby was born, we cut the duct using our hands. We used our headscarves to wrap the baby and therefore the mother.'

As the terrified women tried to remain quiet, they might hear the gunmen outside asking them to open the door.

'But we knew they weren't (security force members),' she said.

Three gunmen were later killed by Afghan security forces.

After the attack 18 babies were taken to a different hospital for treatment - a number of them carried from the scene by heavily armed soldiers.

No group has claimed the attack, but the us blamed the Islamic State group.

U.S. Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad, the architect of the country's pact with the Taliban, said in blaming ISIS militants that they opposed any Taliban deal and sought to trigger an Iraq-style sectarian war in Afghanistan.

But a senior Afghan government official said the patterns of recent attacks showed the involvement of the Taliban and therefore the affiliated Haqqani Network, whose head, Sirajuddin Haqqani, is that the deputy chief of the Taliban.

The official, who declined to be identified, questioned Khalilzad's assessment as 'premature' adding that each one the evidence suggested it had been not Islamic State who administered the raid on the hospital.

The Taliban has warned it's 'fully prepared' to counter Afghan forces.
