Boruch Dayan Emmes: Daniel Viflic Injured In Hamas Bus Attack Is Niftar

Daniel Viflic, (Raphael Daniel Aryeh ben Tamar) the 16-year-old boy injured in the anti-tank missile attack on a school bus in the Negev on last week, was unfortunately just Niftar.

He had been hospitalized in Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center since the terror attack, and his condition slowly deteriorated until his Petira just a few minutes ago.

Viflic suffered severe head trauma and was artificially respirated while unconscious after an anti-tank missile fired from the Gaza Strip struck his school bus in the Negev two weeks ago.

The missile, which was fired by Hamas terrorists, hit the bus moments after most of the children got off, while it was driving near Kibbutz Saad, about 2.5 k.m. from Gaza. Only two people were on the bus when it was hit – the driver, who was lightly injured in the leg, and Viflic, who was en route to visit his grandmother. The bus driver is a friend of the family.

  1. please supply some info on this Kodosh. he was very special in Torah and in Middos, a Ben yochid, and on the way to help his grandmother make Pesach during bain hazmanim. yehi zichro boruch

  2. Boruch Dayan haEmes.
    I am now listening for the voices of those Jew-hating individuals who were screaming about the murderous Israeli soldiers who shot and killed 12-year old Mohammed Al Dura several years ago.

    I believe it has been proven that the child was not shot by Israelis and did not die.

    Let them now state their opinion that Jewish blood has no value. The Arabs got a public relations bonanza for the alleged death of little Mohammad. The blood of the Fogels and Daniel are screaming and demanding equal outrage from these people.

  3. I personally know the boy and his family, they stayed with us a couple of years ago. Very special people and a very special boy. This is a tragedy for them and for all of Klal Yisroel. BDE lets daven that the Zman Geula brings us a geula from all our Tzoros

  4. Baruch Dayan Emes.

    And so now the question is…
    What will the political/military geniuses do to prevent this from happening AGAIN?

    The answer…
    No major military response.
    No national call for teshuva.

    The reason…
    They believe – Hityatzvu u’re’oo et yeshuat obama.

    How many more tragedies will it take for ALL of us to wake up…

  5. While most family’s were preforming bedikas chometz Sunday night, this family was burying their son. How sad….
    B”DE!! May Hashem console the family.

  6. A ben yochid – was he an only son, or an only child? Either way, it is so tragic. May his parents be comforted among the mourners of Zion. It’s a loss that we all feel, even if didn’t know him or his family personally.
