The 18-year-old Israeli girl who was seriously wounded in a Palestinian stabbing attack in Afula earlier this week said on Sunday it was a “miracle” she was still alive, the Hebrew news site Walla reported.

Speaking from Haemek Medical Center, where her condition has begun to improve, high school student Shuva Malka said, “I feel this stabbing incident was not something private for me, but rather of all the people of Israel. It’s a reminder that we must move forward, and grow from it.”

Malka thanked the hospital staff for the treatment she received and the people of Israel for “the prayers that greatly strengthened us and made noise up above.”

“The security forces did everything they could, and I thank them, we don’t have any anger,” she added.
