A Palestinian mother gave birth to quadruplets after spent five years having unsuccessful IVF treatment, the British daily newspaper the Independent reported Saturday.

The mother of the girl and three boys newly born gave birth at Gaza’s main Shifa Hospital.

A picture of the babies, which have a combined weight of seven kilos, was posted by Bassel Abuwarda, a doctor at the Shifa Hospital.

“Despite the pain, Palestinian mother gave birth to quadruplets last night in #Gaza," Abuwarda wrote on his Twitter account

Earlier this week, a blast shook the grounds of Gaza’s main Shifa hospital, without causing any casualties.

More than 1,700 Palestinians have been killed in the ongoing violence which began with an intensive air campaign on July 8 and expanded when Israel sent ground troops into the Gaza periphery on July 17.
