Stand for Israel reported that an Israeli man was seriously injured in Monday's terrorist attack on a Berlin Christmas market, and that his wife was still missing. Today, The Jerusalem Post brings the sad news that Dalia Elyakim has been found, and that she was killed in the attack:

Dalia Elyakim, vacationing with her husband in the German capital, is believed to have been killed after a truck ploughed into a Berlin Christmas market on Monday evening.

Local police said that 12 people were killed overall in the incident.

Elyakim's husband, Rami, was seriously injured in the incident and remains hospitalized after recovering from surgery.

Following the announcement of Elyakim's death, President Reuven Rivlin expressed his condolences to the grieving family, adding that the world must remain resolute in the face of violent extremism.

“I received with great sadness the news of the death of Dalia Elyakim in the horrific terror attack in Berlin," Rivlin said in a statement.

"I send my sympathies and offer strength to her family who are by the bedside of her husband Rami, who was seriously injured in the attack, and we pray for his speedy recovery."

Please keep the loved ones of this Israeli family - and the families of all of the victims - in your prayers, also asking God to provide peace, comfort, and recovery for Rami and the dozens of others injured in the attack.
