Siamese Twins Separated

A pair of Siamese twins born Sunday were successfully separated in an operation at the Schneider children’s hospital in Petach Tikva that same day.

The baby girls were connected at the abdomen, and shared a digestive system and urinary tract, Israel Television reported. The twins, however, will have additional operations.

The mother is a 30-year-old resident of northern Israel, it was reported.
