According to the second report, there is a baby boom going on in Ashdod and the surrounding areas. 9 months after Defensive Edge, they are setting records for births in the area of Ashdod and Ashqelon. During a time of distress, with people spending more time than usual closed up int ehir homes, nature takes its course...
כן ירבו!!
