Doctors in the Saudi capital Riyadh are hoping to separate these two conjoined twins from Iraq who are connected at the abdomen and lower chest.
The babies arrived at King Khalid International Airport along with their dad Mohammed Abdullah, and their mother, who has not been named, on Sunday evening, on 11th September.
The government-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said in a statement that the twins, who have been named as Omar and Ali, were taken to the King Abdullah Specialized Children’s Hospital, where doctors will assess their case in a bid to separate the twins.
The SPA said that the twins were joined at the lower chest and abdomen, as can be seen in these images.
The head of the medical team at the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre, Dr Abdullah Al-Rabiah, said that the centre is geared towards helping people all over the world with difficult conditions.
The twins’ dad, Mohammed Abdullah, is quoted in the SPA statement as saying that he has “great confidence” in the Saudi doctors due to their extensive experience in the field. He also reportedly thanked the Kingdom for the warm welcome he and his family have received.
