Palestinian conjoined twins airlifted to Saudi Arabia for surgical review

Published: Updated:

Palestinian Siamese twins -- Hanin and Farah -- were airlifted on Saturday from Jordan to Saudi Arabia, in line with directives from Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman

Accompanied by their father, the conjoined twins were taken by a medically-equipped evacuation airplane to Riyadh, following their arrival in Amman from Gaza City, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

They will be closely examined before a decision is taken whether it is feasible to carry out surgical separation at King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh.

The twins, both girls, are joined in the abdominal and pelvic areas. They also share some internal organs.
