In Jerusalem, a 17-year-old Palestinian boy broke into a home on Thursday night and brutally woke up a 13-year-old girl by stabbing her to death. Security guards shot and killed the attacker.
The NY Post reported that the victim’s name is Hallel Yaffa Ariel. “She was a cousin of Uri Ariel, a Cabinet minister from the Jewish Home, a party affiliated with the West Bank settler movement. The minister later said Israel would make ‘every effort’ to build up settlements in the West Bank.”
The U.S. States Department considers this act of terror, the stabbing of a young teenage girl in her sleep, “unconscionable.”
