(Scroll down for video) Israeli police are looking to arrest a Palestinian doctor after he claimed to have smuggled out sperm from Palestinian prisoners in Israel, in order to get their wives pregnant, according to press reports in Israel.

The Palestinian fertility doctor said this week that he used the sperm of Palestinian prisoners he smuggled out from Israeli jails to help their wives have children and that five women are now pregnant.

There are about 4,500 Palestinians in Israeli prisons serving sentences for offenses ranging from stone-throwing to killing Israeli civilians.

Most women seeking to become pregnant have husbands who were convicted of involvement in deadly militant attacks and are serving long sentences.
