Specialists treating fourteen day old Abd al-Khaleq and Abd al-Rahim said Yemen's war-attacked wellbeing framework can't keep them alive, and the guardians are poor. 

"They have to travel promptly. They won't almost certainly get by in Yemen under the social, political and monetary conditions in this nation," Doctor Faisal al-Balbali told Reuters in al-Thawra medical clinic in the capital Sanaa where the young men were conceived. 

The little young men, who are being taken in a hatchery, have separate heads. 

Inside their common middle they have separate spines, lungs, hearts and stomach related frameworks, yet they share a liver, conceptive organs and pair of kidneys, arms and legs between them.

Their folks were absent when the specialists were talking about their children, however medicinal staff said they had concurred with them to welcome the media to feature their predicament.
