12-year-old Ayala Shapira, who was badly burned in a terrorist firebomb attack in Samaria in December, was released from Sheba Medical Center earlier this month. She will still receive outpatient therapy two days a week and undergo more medical treatments, but her family is very happy that she is able to return home finally.
The attack occurred as Ayala and her father made their way home to the West Bank (Samaria) community of El-Matan. Two terrorists approached their vehicle and threw the firebomb at it. Ayala was able to leave the car on her own but suffered severe burns and required a lengthy hospitalization and recovery.
