Conceived at Ramat Gan.

2013-04-10: Issa was discovered by keepers unable to get to her feet. Firefighters were called in to help, but when exhaustion overcame her, efforts to raise her were stopped. The 19-year-old was lowered into a comfortable position to allow her to recover, and was eating and drinking. But Issa's condition deteriorated through the night and she later died.
