June 30, 2016 21:18

WASHINGTON - Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's top Israel advisor condemned the "brutal killing" of Hallel Yaffa Ariel on Thursday, and called on the Palestinian Authority to take "concrete measures" to stop incitement to terrorism.

"Our hearts were broken today when we learned of the tragic death of Hallel Yaffa Ariel, a beautiful and innocent 13 year old girl who, as she slept in her bed, was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist," said Jason Greenblatt, with the Trump Organization.

"The murderer has been hailed as a hero and a martyr by numerous Palestinian factions," he added. "And the silence of the liberal media with respect to this horrific tragedy is deafening."
