Lebanon War Baby Boom

Filed under: Army,Israel — lonelymanofcake @ 8:26 pm

Israel’s wars have generally been followed by a significant increase in pregnancies, and the Second Lebanon War was apparently no exception. A researcher at Sheba Hospital pointed to a 35% increase in pregnancies since the war ended.

As noted in the article, the mothers all hope that in eighteen years, there will be no need for their children to serve in the army.

UPDATE:  The English-language press has picked up on the story, which was broadcast last night on Israel’s Channel 10.
