Prime Minister Netanyahu paid a condolence visit to the family of 13-year-old Hallel-Yaffa Ariel, who was slaughtered by a Palestinian terrorist while sleeping in her bed.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman joined Prime Minister Netanyahu for a sad visit to the family of the young girl who was butchered while sleeping in her bed in her Kiryat Arba home.
Netanyahu listened to stories shared by Hallel’s parents, about their 13-year-old daughter who was brutally murdered in their home by a Palestinian terrorist who broke into their community.
“We strengthen this place,” he said. “Apart from the fighting, we will make it stronger. I will sit with the Defense Minister and we will decide how to strengthen the community.
“To see Hallel’s room, to see the blood stains next to her bed and the books and clothes of a small child, this is shocking. It reminds us again who we are facing. They want to uproot what has been planted and we will deepen the roots. They will not make us leave here.”
Netanyahu said he was “very impressed with this wonderful family, they will not break their spirits and they will not succeed in breaking our spirit.”
Let us pray that this will be the last tragedy to strike the Jewish people.
