Baruch Dayan HaEmet (Blessed is the True Judge): Baby Adele is no more (May God Avenge her blood)Adele was four years old.
Adelle Biton, the four-year-old child who was critically injured in a stone-throwing incident near the settlement of Ariel two years ago, died in Petach Tikva’s Schneider Hospital on Tuesday evening from complications following a lung infection.
Biton and her family were driving from their home in the settlement of Yakir to the center of Israel in March 2013 when a stone thrown at the vehicle caused it to go out of control and crash into a truck that was parked at the side of the road – also due to stone-throwing.
Her mother and two sisters were moderately injured in the attack, but Biton was taken to Schneider Hospital in critical condition with a serious head wound, and never fully recovered.
From Schneider, Biton was relocated to the Levenstein rehabilitation center and in September last year she was released to home care.
Biton began coughing earlier this week and was diagnosed with a lung infection. Her condition deteriorated quickly.
Five youths from the neighboring village of Kif el-Hares were indicted for throwing the stones that struck the Biton car. Their case is currently being heard in a military court.May Baby Adele be a melitzat yosher (an honest supplicant) for her family and friends.
May her family be comforted among all mourners for Zion and Jerusalem, and know of no more sorrow.
And May God Avenge her blood.
