Israeli commander jailed for delaying pregnant woman

Nablus - Ma'an - An Israeli company commander was jailed for 14 days and stripped of command for his role in causing a pregnant Palestinian woman's baby to be delivered stillborn, Israeli sources said Friday.

The Israeli army said the soldier violated protocol by not allowing the woman to pass.

The baby died as its mother, Nahil Abu Raja, attempted to cross a checkpoint en route to a Nablus hospital. Israeli soldiers reportedly told the woman that she did not have proper identification.

When paramedics arrived nearly one hour later, the baby was declared dead.
