By Ilan Ben Zion
A two-day-old boy from a Galilee village was rushed to a Haifa hospital on Friday after a botched circumcision.
The infant’s Muslim parents brought their child to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa after the ritual circumciser accidentally dismembered the child’s penis.
Urologists and surgeons worked to reattach the detached organ and said they expect the procedure to be successful.
This is the second time in the past month that the Rambam Medical Center has dealt with a misperformed circumcision.
