The condition of Daniel Viflic, 16, who was wounded when Gaza terrorists fired an anti-tank missile at a school bus he was in, has taken a turn for the worse. He has been in critical condition since the attack Thursday, which ministers have termed "barbaric."
 
His family asks the public to pray for his health. His full name is Raphael Daniel Aryeh ben Tamar . Daniel is a student at a yeshiva in Beit Shemesh where there are round-the-clock prayers for his recovery since the attack.
 
David Vazana, who was close to Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu Z"tzl, told Arutz Sheva Tuesday morning that Daniel "needs much mercy from Heaven."
 
"The situation is very critical and only a miracle will make him stronger. I was asked to conduct a kapparot ceremony as the Rishon LeTzion, Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu Z"tzl, instructed in the past in similar cases."
 
An additional kapparot ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday.
 
Rabbi Vazana also asked the public to pray for Raphael Daniel Aryeh ben Tamar, and also for Odelia bat Nechama who was wounded in the latest Jerusalem terror attack.
