Recently we posted videos documenting the incitement to violence against Jews in Palestinian Arab media, political spheres, social media, and schools, focused on “children”:

That incitement particularly focuses on urging children to carry out knife attacks.

Just a couple of days ago a Palestinian Authority official urged people to slit the throats of Israelis:

A senior Palestinian Authority official said yesterday (Monday), that if he saw an Israeli he’d “slit his throat.”

The official is Fatah Central Committee member and adviser to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, Sultan Abu al-Einein.

In an interview with the Al Watan site discussing the matter of normalization of relations with Israel and the talks currently ongoing between Israeli and Palestinian Authority representatives, the Fatah member said: “I am against discussions, talks, meetings, and any kind of normalization with the Israeli occupiers.”

It is no surprise that a significant percentage of the attacks in the so-called Knife or Stabbing Intifada have been carried out by Palestinian Arab “children” under the age of 18:

When Israel arrests these “children,” anti-Israel groups like ‘Jewish Voice for Peace‘ launch campaigns accusing Israel of child abuse.

Given the climate of incitement, it is no surprise that another murder has been carried out by a 17-year old Palestinian “child” — and that an Israeli girl is dead.

The Times of Israel reports:

A 13-year-old girl died after being stabbed repeatedly by a Palestinian assailant who entered her bedroom in the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba Thursday morning. Another man was seriously wounded in the terror attack.

The victim, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, was rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem unconscious, not breathing and in critical condition, where doctors said they were unable to save her.

The assailant was shot and killed, the Israel Defense Forces said.

The Palestinian health ministry identified him as Muhammad Nasser Tarayrah, 17, from Bani Naim, adjacent to Kiryat Arba.

The Times of Israel obtained this Facebook photo of the “child” terrorist:

The reaction from Israel condemned the incitement, and mourned the young girl’s death:

The NY Times featured a photo of Israeli soldiers in its coverage, not the murder victim:

The reaction from Arab Palestinian media and some prominent supporters of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement is what we have come to expect — this supposedly was a martyrdom operation, the attacker is the real victim, and the Jews brought it upon themselves. IsraellyCool documents some of the reaction.

UPDATES: In accordance with Jewish tradition, the funeral was held quickly:

Prime Minister Netanyahu also issued this video statement:
