Baruch Dayan Emet. Adele Biton, injured in stoning attack 2 years ago, has passed away.

In dreadful, heart-breaking news, we have just heard that Adele Biton, the little girl who was so critically injured in a stoning attack on her mother’s car almost exactly 2 years ago, has died of pneumonia.

Adelle Biton, the four-year-old terror victim who two years ago miraculously survived a rock attack which left her with severe neurological damage, passed away on Tuesday after her condition deteriorated rapidly from a bout of pneumonia.

She was admitted earlier this week to Schneider Children’s Hospital in Petah Tikva for treatment, and on Tuesday it was revealed that she had been put in intensive care.

“With great sorrow we report the death of Adelle Biton who despite the efforts of the doctors passed away roughly an hour ago,” stated the hospital on Tuesday. “Our condolences to the family.”

“Two years ago we had a great miracle here, and that is what I long for,” Adele’s mother Adva told Arutz Sheva earlier on Tuesday afternoon. “Adele is here, and she is fighting.”

Adelle was critically wounded in March 2013, when the family car was attacked outside of Ariel in Samaria by Arab terrorists, who hurled rocks at the vehicle and caused it to veer off the road and crash headfirst into a truck.

The fist-sized rock struck Adelle directly in the head, leaving the two-year-old baby critically wounded and in mortal danger. Doctors said her recovery from the blow was nothing short of miraculous.

Adelle had been in and out of the hospital since in a grueling rehabilitation period.

I wonder how likely it is that Adele’s terrible injury led to her contracting pneumonia and her subsequent inability to overcome it. If there is any kind of provable link then the murderers should have their jail time lengthened to life without parole, without release in “prisoner exchanges” and without any benefits.

There are no words to comfort parents who lose a child. May the family be comforted amongst the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may they know no more sorrow.

    Awful news. Bring back the death penalty!

    Did the law pass to stop prisoner swaps? I hope so.

      I’ve become so suspicious of our leaders over the years. Even if they changed the law, what are the chances it would be changed back if it was “convenient”?

    I am sitting here crying for her & her family. She had such a hard last 2 years. Poor little girle. This is criminal. She died from pneumonia. People who can’t move properly because of physical disabilities,or children & old people who are more suceptible to pneumonia due to a lowered immune system are in mortal danger. Adele z”l would not have died had that rock not been thrown onto her head. Bring back the death penalty. Stone those murderers too.

    May her family be comforted amonst the mourners of Zion

    Oh, how sad. I am just seeing this. Anne, her death from the pneumonia is most certainly related to her prolonged neurological damage and struggles. Few children die from pneumonia anymore, and those who do are generally weakened from other medical conditions. My son also died young from a brain tumor, but what actually caused his death was a brain infection. When children like this are very ill, it is often not the more serious underlying illness that directly causes their death but the various other complications that arise from their weakened state.

    My heart breaks for this mother, as I know the pain she will carry now. However, I do not know the additional pain she must carry that someone chose to do this to her child.

      Oh, I had no idea! How terrible for you about your son.

      Thank you for your very moving comment.

        Anne, my son’s name is Joshua, named after Joshua in Scripture. We have written on his stone, “in battle he was strong and courageous.” And he was. Everyone who knew him was touched by his love and strength, and at the ripe age of 6, his faith that G*d loved him and never left him was already very apparent. He was an incredible kid. 🙂
