The Commander of Judea and Samaria Division, Brig. Gen. Haggai Mordechai, visited the Biton family Friday at Schneider Hospital in Petach Tikva, where baby Adelle Biton is fighting for her life after a terror rock attack Thursday.

Adelle's mother and two sisters, Naama (6) and Avigail (4), were also wounded moderately to seriously in the terror attack.

Brig. Gen. Mordechai updated the family regarding the IDF's activity overnight following the terror attack. Adelle, who is in critical condition, was taken into the operating theater Friday and doctors are trying to save her life.

By Friday morning soldiers had arrested 10 suspects, all Palestinian Authority resident Arab men. The suspects all live in the area in which the attack was committed. Eight were picked up in the village of Hares, and two in nearby Kifl Harath.
