Woman gives birth to quintuplets in refugee camp

A woman in Al Jimam camp gave birth to quintuplets on Tuesday amid harsh humanitarian conditions in the camp.

'The birth was normal and successful despite the lack of medical resources, the mother and her three boys and two girls are in good health,' said Aisha el-Tom, a medical member of staff that over saw the birth.

She added that the lack of medical services at the camp is problematic as people are forced to turn to traditional methods.
