The three boys and one girl weighed between 2 lbs., 10 oz. and 4 lbs., 1 oz. The four small infants are in good condition in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) undergoing close observation.

The boys were born to Reema Elkafarneh. The boys have been named Ahmed, Mohammad and Mohanned, and the girl has been named Dana, according to hospital staff.
