The mother of two young boys who were killed in a terror attack on Friday says their father, who was also hurt in the car-ramming in Jerusalem, still doesn’t know what happened.

Yaakov Yisrael Paley, 6, was buried shortly after the attack, while his older brother, 8-year-old Asher Menahem Paley, died yesterday of his wounds. Their brother Moshie, 10, was lightly hurt and released from the hospital over the weekend and their father, 42, remains hospitalized in moderate condition.

“We pray that he’ll wake up healthy and that God will give him the strength to face the new reality,” the mother, Dvora, tells reporters as she marks the traditional mourning period. “What will happen to our two sweet ones?”

“They were happy, good children who liked to help,” she adds.
