Israeli terror attack victim: Stop transferring money to terrorists’ families

Israeli teenager Ayala Shapira was severely injured two years ago when a Molotov cocktail was thrown at her in the West Bank. She suffered from serious burns on her face, which force her to wear a special mask to this day. Today, she spoke before EU Parliament members aimed at stopping the money that is sent from Europe to the terrorists.

In 2014, Ayala Shapira was severely injured in a terror attack within the West Bank when a Molotov cocktail was thrown at the car she was riding in with her father. Today, she still wears bandages, receives medical treatment twice a week and has been recruited to the settlers’ Hasbara movement. She attended the Association for Judea and Samaria’s first conference at the EU Parliament in order to speak about what happened to her.

Ayala was brought along today (Tuesday) in order to uncover, move and explain what it is to be a settler. She and her mother asked the parliament to stop unregulated money transfers to the Palestinians from within the EU, which aids the terrorists’ families. “I saw a ball of fire coming towards us,” Ayala told the parliament members. “My father quickly slammed on the breaks. The ball of fire shattered my window and landed between us. It was a Molotov cocktail. I remember that everything around me was burning. I thought I was going to die.”

Ayala stated that she was hospitalized for eight months and then spoke about the terrorist that attacked her, a Palestinian teenager. “The terrorist who threw the Molotov cocktail at our car was 16-years-old, only a few years older than me,” she said. “He knew that if he goes into prison, the Palestinians will take care of his family.”
