Doctors at Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv said today (December 26, 2014) that there is a "slight improvement" in the condition of 11-year-old Ayala Shapira, who still is fighting for her life after a Palestinian Authority terrorist set on fire the car in which she and her father were riding last night, according to the Jewish Press website.
Her father escaped the burning vehicle with light burn wounds. Ayala suffered burns over 40 percent of her body, mostly in the upper parts and in the face.
Last month, Ayala's mother Ruth was targeted in a similar Molotov cocktail attack in the same spot of last night's attack. Her car was destroyed but she was not injured.
The girl's father, Avner, told police that he saw the terrorist lighting the firebomb and throwing it.
