Gross Family: 'Only Prayer Can Save the Boys'


Shimon and Michal Gross, the parents of 2- and 4-year-old Yael and Avigail z''l who died from poisoning in Jerusalem on Wednesday, spoke to Arutz Sheva about their pain in trying to cope with the loss and appealed for help.

The two girls were poisoned after an exterminator, who has been arrested, left pesticide in their apartment's safe room. The poison, Phosphine, is used in chemical weapons in Syria.

Aside from the girls, two sons Michael and Yitzhak, aged 5 and 7, remain hospitalized in serious condition, still struggling for their lives.
