Woman gives birth to co-joined twins at Syria war zone

A mother has given birth to conjoined twins in a part of Syria that has seen some of the war’s heaviest fighting. Nawras and Moaz, who are joined at the chest with protruding intestines, were born in the city of Douma in July. They have now been safely transferred by ambulance to a children’s hospital in nearby Damascus.  
The twins travelled with their mother and aunt and are said to be in good health. Syrian doctors had appealed for help from the World Health Organization, saying the twins would die if they were unable to undergo surgery.
