Sigal Sofer, whose 3-year-old daughter was badly burned when two molotov cocktail smashed through her car window over three and a half years ago, cursed the terrorist responsible for the crime during a hearing in Jerusalem on Tuesday, Arutz7 reports.

The attack took place in October 23, 2015 near the Jewish town of Beit El. The Sofer family were on the way to Beit El to spend the Sabbath with the husband’s sister.

Just before a turn, “two murderers” in the words of Mrs. Sofer, waited for them on a hill and threw two molotov cocktails. The firebombs smashed through the window and landed in the back seat where their three children, Tair, 11, Matan, 10, and Tahel were sitting.

The firebombs landed directly on Tahel and she was instantly covered in flames, Mrs. Sofer related in an interview with Arutz7 shortly after the terror attack.

“Tahel’s dress, herself, her hair, the seat, Tahel’s dress. The two children sitting next to her were also a little burned,” she said.

Her husband continued driving to get away. Then they pulled over the put out the flames. “It was frightening to see Tahel and everything that was burning. We were also afraid the car would catch fire and explode,” she said.

“It’s such a nightmare. To see your child burning,” she said.

The Mahane Ofer military court presented a plea bargain deal signed by the terrorist on Tuesday, Arutz7 reports.

Mrs. Sofer blasted the terrorist at the hearing.

“How evil you are, disgusting, violent scum,” she said. “I wish that all of your children would be burned, one kid after another, slowly, from the top to the bottom. All of your kids and any other descendants. If you dared to burn a three-year-old girl, you are scum.”
