Mother, 24, Gives Birth to Quintuplets in Tyre

A 24-year-old Lebanese has given birth to premature quintuplets in the southern city of Tyre, the state-run National News Agency reported on Wednesday.

Aya Jameel Haidar had quintuplets – three girls and two boys – at the Hospital of Jabal Amel in Tyre, NNA said.

“The mother is in good health after having a caesarian section,” Doctor Kamel Yassine said.

Aya is married from Hussein Fawaz, who hails from the southern town of Debaal.

“The babies are stable, weigh between 1,000 grams and 1,300 grams and are currently at the newborn Intensive Care Unit facility,” Yassine added.

Aya's doctor Riad Ghareeb told NNA that “she was infertile and had been undergoing treatment for the past two years... Pregnancy happened in a natural way without fertilization.”

The mother called on the state to aid her and provide her and her babies with their needs amid the difficult social and economic situation.
