Hard to believe

The 'Palestinians' are claiming that for the first time, a Jewish baby was born on Wednesday at a hospital in Ramallah.
Palestinian Authority Health Minister Fathi Abu Mugli told WAFA that "a Jewish woman who was in Ramallah for unknown reasons came to the medical complex suffering from abdominal pain and after being examined," it turned out she was in labor.

The woman was reportedly asked if she wanted to be transferred by ambulance to an Israeli hospital, but "the mother refused and insisted on staying and delivering the baby in the complex," Mugli said.

The baby was born prematurely at 5.1 pounds (2.3 kilograms) and placed in an intensive care incubator unit, according to the report.

According to the PA health minister, Israel was notified of the baby's birth and it was requested that she be transferred to Israel but the new mother supposedly declined, WAFA reported.
I don't believe this story. I can believe that they would withhold the name for privacy reasons, but where was she from (Jerusalem? Samaria?), why was she in Ramallah, and although she may have been panicked about giving birth early, why would any woman, especially with a premature baby, decline a transfer to a much-better-equipped Israeli hospital? Something doesn't smell right here.

Indeed there is more to the story. Turns out the Israeli in question is a Jewish born convert to Islam married to an Arab.

Elder of Ziyon has more detail:

"a Jewish woman (last name Nasreen) was shopping in Ramallah with her husband and went into labor."

I think there we have all the details we need. Last name is Arabic, therefore her husband is an Arab and they live, or at least shop, in Ramallah which implies they are Palestinians.

The woman may or may not be Jewish but she is certainly not living as a Jew. Ergo, the story is fundamentally false.

Now there's a surprise...
