A Palestinian terrorist stabbed a 13-year old to death in her bedroom on Thursday morning after he infiltrated the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba, which is located next to Hebron.

A Magen David Adom paramedic said that when he arrived at the scene the teenage girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, was unconscious and was not breathing. They were able to resuscitate her at the scene, but the it was touch-and-go during the whole journey to Sha’are Tzedek Hospital, as they continuously fought to keep her alive.

She was pronounced dead shortly after her arrival, without ever regaining consciousness.

Hallel, had been a member of a dance troop and had performed in Jerusalem the night before. Her father, Amihai, is a cousin of Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, and runs a boutique winery.

The terrorist, believed to be 17-year old, breached the settlement’s fence and then entered the Ariel home that was located on a security road, near a yeshiva high school for boys.

The settlement’s security team responded to the incident. According to the IDF, the terrorist stabbed a member of that security team, before another member of the team shot and killed the him.

Among the Magen David paramedics who responded to the scene, was the wife of the wounded member of the security team.

She went with her husband to the Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Karem. Doctors there said that the wounded man, believed to be age 30, was suffering from gun shot wounds and that his injuries were not life threatening.

I am at Shaarei Tzedek hospital for my wife’s chemo treatment today, and as we arrived, immediately noticed press and a heavy police presence. It did not take too long to learn the devastating reason for it.

As usual, we see disgusting reactions from palestinians, their media, antisemites and Israel haters (list being updated).

If you support those who do these things or otherwise justify or minimize these actions, please exit the gene pool stage left.

Update: This from last week:

Sultan Abu al-Einein, an adviser to Abbas on civil society organizations and a Fatah Central Committee member, said during an interview with the Palestinian news site Donia al-Watan: “Wherever you find an Israeli, slit his throat.”
