The three-month-old girl killed in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem was laid to rest early Thursday morning in the capital’s Har Hamenuchot cemetery.

President Reuven Rivlin and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat were among the hundreds in attendance, paying final respects to Chaya Zissel Braun, who was killed when Silwan resident Abdelrahman al-Shaludi drove his car into a crowd waiting at the Ammunition Hill light rail station.

“The incitement on the Arab street and in the streets of Jerusalem is growing,” Rivlin said during his eulogy, according to Israel National News. “The incitement that to our sorrow enjoys support from the leadership in the Arab world could cause a disaster in the fragile fabric of life in Jerusalem, and carry us all into a maelstrom of destruction and pain.”

“We are standing before a tiny, silent body, before a small grave, standing against haters and murderers whose hands slaughter without distinction, without mercy. An innocent baby was butchered by burning hatred and darkness.”

The baby was thrown at least ten meters from her stroller after being struck by the car. Medics said they were able to resuscitate her at the scene, but she died two hours later at the Hadassah-Mount Scopus Hospital.

The girl’s grandfather, Shimon Halperin, told reporters Wednesday evening that the baby’s parents had tried for years to have a child, and that he had flown in from America to meet his granddaughter. They had taken her to the Western Wall that day for the first time.

“The parents are traumatized and are trying to digest the news,” Halperin said. “The doctors did everything they could and I want to thank them.”

Eight others were injured in the attack.

Palestinian sources said that Israeli security forces raided the family home of Shaludi.

Shaludi’s father was reportedly beaten by police officers.

Shaludi is the nephew of Mohiyedine Sharif, the former head of Hamas’s armed wing and its chief bomb-maker who was killed in 1988.

The Palestinian sources said Shaludi, 21, was arrested and sentenced to 16 months in Israeli prison in February 2012, and was again detained earlier this year for a month.

Shaludi was shot Wednesday afternoon attempting to flee the scene of the terrorist attack he allegedly carried out.

A few hours after the incident, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered police reinforcements deployed across the capital, following a security briefing from Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and Shin Bet chief Yoram Cohen.
