Toddler Injured in 2013 Attack Dies

In 2013, two-year-old Adele Britton was severely injured by rock-throwing terrorists. Yesterday, the young Israeli girl passed away. The Times of Israel reports that hundreds attended little Adele’s funeral to mourn her loss and support her grieving family:

Hundreds of people on Wednesday attended the funeral of 4-year-old Adele Bitton, who was critically injured in a 2013 rock-throwing attack and died of complications of pneumonia on Tuesday.

The funeral took place in the West Bank settlement of Yakir, where the Bittons live, and near the site of the March 2013 attack that left Adele Bitton with severe brain damage.

“When you were a baby, you didn’t like to sleep,” her mother, Adva Bitton eulogized at the funeral. “‘No sleep, Ima [Mother],’ you would wake up at night and cry ‘Abba [Father], Ima, pacifier, bottle, no sleep.’ Now I understand that you had to get things done. You managed to get a lot done in this short life.”

Bitton referred to the stone-throwing attack as “the day your body was murdered by the evil people, but your soul continued to pulsate.”

“You didn’t give up, my warrior, the terrorists didn’t manage to take away your beauty, my beauty, my heart is breaking,” she said.
