The widow of the victim of a Gaza rocket attack on southern Israel gave birth to a baby boy.
Lilach Shoshan gave birth on Yom Kippur in Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center.

Shoshan said she will name the boy Shimon after her husband’s father, as the couple had planned.
The couple had two other children, daughters aged 7 and 4. They will choose the baby’s middle name, according to reports.

For a while there, almost every day brought free diapers, coupons for baby food, baby lotion, baby photographs. I passed them on to my sister, who has a year-old son, and told myself...
