(Townhall) Last night Hallel Yaffa Ariel was asleep in her bed when a 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist wielding a knife stabbed her multiple times. The attack took place in Hebron, Israel, which is in the West Bank. She was taken to a hospital where she died from her wounds. The terrorist was shot by security forces in the neighborhood and posted on his Facebook page before breaking into the home, "Death is a blessing." Ariel's mother described the attack:
"Like all adolescents during summer vacation, my daughter was asleep — tranquil, calm — and a terrorist came and murdered her in her bed," Rina Ariel, the mother of Hallel Yaffa Ariel, told reporters outside Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem where the teenager was taken after sustaining critical injuries in the attack earlier Thursday.
