The father of 13-year-old Hallel-Yaffa Ariel, who was murdered in her sleep by a Palestinian terrorist Thursday morning, has spoken of his gifted girl’s dreams of becoming a dancer.
“Last night she came back from a dance performance,” Amichai Ariel recounted. “She was an amazing girl.”
“She worked very hard for years to become a dancer. She put so much effort into everything she did. God gave her a great mind, lots of wisdom. She was so bright.”
Yael Kabiliv, the aunt of the young girl murdered in Thursday morning’s vicious terror attack in Kiryat Arba, spoke with journalists in the Shaarei Tzedek hospital, following news that Hallel-Yaffa Ariel had succumbed to her injuries.
“A truly wonderful girl was murdered today – Hallel-Yaffa bat Rina Devorah. Hallel, my niece, was the most amazing girl in the world.”
