Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called Rafi Biton on the eve of the Pesach holiday to tell him that suspects in attempted murder of his daughter, Adelle, are under arrest.

Adelle, who is only 3, is in critical condition after the attack, in which Arabs hurled rocks at moving cars near Ariel.

Netanyahu wished Biton and his family a happy Pesach. "I, my wife, Sarah, and the entire nation of Israel pray for the well-being of our sweet little one, Adelle," he said.

Seven Israelis were injured in the terror attack, nine days ago. 

They include Adelle's mother and two sisters, aged 6 and 4. The attack highlighted the fact that while the Fatah organization that rules parts of Judea and Samaria is supposedly moderate and Israel's potential partner in peace talks, its residents continue to carry out murderous attacks against Israelis with the encouragement and incitement of the leadership in Ramallah.
