A US government official has informed the Associated Press that Hallel Yaffa Ariel, who was  brutally stabbed and murdered this morning by a Palestinian terrorist as she lay in her bed, was a US citizen.

The 13-year-old girl was killed in her Kiryat Arba home.

She was a citizen of the United States, a US government official has confirmed to the Associated Press’s chief diplomatic correspondent, Matt Lee.


As reported earlier on Matzav, the US State Department condemned today’s terror attack.

US State Department spokesman John Kirby said: “We condemn in the strongest possible terms the outrageous terrorist attack this morning in the West Bank in which a 13-year-old girl, Hallel Ariel, was stabbed to death in her home. Kirby then added: “This brutal act of terrorism is simply unconscionable. We extend our deepest condolences to her family. We also understand that another individual who was responding to the attack was wounded by the attacker. We extend our hopes for a quick and full recovery.”

  1. hashem yeracheim. may hashem comfort them among the mourners of zion speedily , and may we be zoche to end this galus QUICKLY , amen

  2. why is obama himself not making this “condemnation statement”? why is he sending a state dept spokesman to speak on behalf of the US? i can assure you if it had been the other way around and a young muslim arab were murdered, obama would be on the airwaves even before the funeral! i am truly ashamed to be an american with such a biased government under our leadership. vote for hillary and you’re asking for 4 more years (or G-d forbid, 8 years) of this atrocity. what a scam!!

  3. Kirby is a phony thru and thru. The White House doesn’t care about Jewish blood being spilled in Israel. They only embolden the terrorists with their constant double talk and criticism of the Jewish Nation.
