The Jerusalem Post reports:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday visited the family of 13-year-old Hallel Yaffa Ariel, who was murdered Thursday morning as she slept in her Kiryat Arba bedroom after a terrorist from a nearby Palestinian village sneaked inside and stabbed her to death.
The premier was also accompanied by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman and Agricultural Minister Uri Ariel.
During the meeting, Netanyahu commended the family’s strength during such a difficult time, and promised to discuss with Liberman ways to help prevent similar attacks in the future.
Netanyahu told the family that “to see Hallel’s room, to see the bloodstains there at the side her bed and on books and clothes of this little girl, it’s shocking.”
“And it reminds us once again who we are and what we are facing,” he added. “They want to uproot us, but will deepen our roots. They will not force us out of here.”
