Police have arrested two more Arab Muslim youths from Tzur Baher in Jerusalem, on suspicion that they took part in a rock ambush that seriously wounded a two-year-old baby, Avigail Ben Tzion, a week ago.

Police are now holding seven suspects in the case.

Avigail was released from hospital Sunday and has returned home.

The doctors at the Children's Neurosurgery Clinic at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital will continue to follow her recovery from the head injury she suffered.

Avigail's father, Assaf Ben Tzion, said Sunday morning on Channel 10 that her condition has improved markedly. “She doesn't completely understand why she is in the hospital and we haven't really explained it to her yet, but she is already responding to her surroundings and smiling.”
