The bereaved mother of the 13-year old girl, Hallel-Yaffa Ariel, who was murdered in Thursday's terror attack in Kiryat Arba spoke to Arutz Sheva at the Shaarei Tzedek hospital, where her daughter was evacuated after being stabbed dozens of times by an Arab terrorist.

"My daughter was just sleeping - tranquil, relaxed, happy - when a terrorist came to her bed in Kiryat Arba and murdered her."

"I, the mother, am not saying anything, I just ask that everyone consider [our] pain, I ask everyone to come and console us, strengthen us, and tell us that our [home] Kiryat Arba is still a place to live in - and not die in; that we may continue to love our place and our land. May Hallel-Yaffa Ariel's memory be blessed."
