Infant mortality rates (IMR) from the CIA Factbook: Israel 4.22 deaths/1,000 live births 2009 est. West Bank 15.96 deaths/1,000 live births 2009 est. I sympathise for the parents of children suffering in Haifa and hope the authorities work to improve the air quality. However, as the figures from the CIA (yes, the CIA) Factbook show, the IMR in the West Bank is four times the rate in Israel. I hope to read an article about this disparity in Haaretz before too long.
