The 3-month-old baby who was murdered in today’s (23/10/14) Palestinian terrorist attack in Jerusalem has been identified as the daughter of two American-Israelis and an American citizen herself, Haya Zissel Braun. Haya was returning from her first ever trip to the Western Wall when she was hit by the terrorist’s car in her stroller. Witnesses say Haya was thrown from her stroller 10-20 meters in the air and landed on her head – suffering cranial bleeding. Her father was also injured in the attack. The public has been asked to daven for her father who is currently in critical condition: Shmuel Elimelech Ben Ester Matil.
Haya’s grandfather told the press that her parents had tried for years to have a child – now they took their newborn to the Kotel to pray and she was murdered by Hamas terrorists.
