Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir is demanding answers from the Israel Prison Service in response to Palestinian media reports that an imprisoned terrorist’s wife has given birth to quadruplets in the Gaza Strip via his smuggled semen.

Ahmad Shamali, who is serving an 18-year sentence in Nafha prison in southern Israel for various terror-related offenses, managed to have his sperm carried out of the prison and through the Erez Crossing into Gaza by a doctor who made sure it would reach his wife in Gaza, according to Palestinian media. 

Shamali’s wife gave birth in May in a hospital in east Jerusalem and only this week returned to the Gaza Strip, having stayed in the maternity ward for several weeks until the premature infants were healthy enough to come back home with her.

Upon her return to Gaza, the story of the unusual conception was revealed, leading to celebrations online and a display of the four infants.

Sources close to Ben-Gvir say that the smuggling incident occurred before he became a minister in late December, but that he nevertheless sees the incident as a major lapse, and wants to impose greater restrictions on security inmates.
