Tefillos Requested for School Bus Missile Victim


hamas-school-bus-victimThe family of 16-year-old Daniel Viflic is asking the public to daven for their son.¬†Daniel was critically wounded last week when Gaza terrorists fired an anti-tank missile at the school bus he was riding in near Kibbutz Sa’ad.

He is now fighting for his life, in critical condition, at Be’er Sheva’s Soroka Medical Center with extensive wounds throughout his body, particularly to his head.

“Unfortunately I do not have good news. His condition is not good and not improving,” Soroka’s Professor Shaul Sofer, told Channel 2 television this ¬†afternoon. “We are not accustomed to using this terminology, but he has suffered a mortal wound. We are still hopeful, but are being very realistic and we know that the injury is very severe.”

The Ramat Beit Shemesh resident was reportedly on his way to visit his grandparents, who live in the western Negev, when the bus was hit by the missile.

The driver, also injured, suffered moderate shrapnel wounds to his legs.

Rabbonim have added the name “Raphael” to Daniel’s name.

The public is asked to daven for the life and speedy recovery of Raphael Daniel Aryeh ben Tamar.
