The Palestinian attacks are highly arbitrary. There are both Jews and non-Jews slain. In this series, the names of victims of Palestinian terrorism since September 2000 to the present day. This is Part IV of the names of 100 victims.
Israel is often criticized for dislocated families with counter-actions which for example not only a terrorist is slain but also his wife and children were in the car. Sometimes it is true. The terrorist often uses innocent people as a cover when in transit and danger feels. Nothing is 'nicer' to Israel later on to accuse it has slain innocent people. In Palestinian terrorist attacks which are not specifically aimed at certain individuals but also often come across families. Take the example of the family Nehmad. The family Nehmad came during a suicide attack at a jesjieva in the Beit Yisrael neighborhood charedische in the center of Jerusalem. The Nehmads, a traditional religious family, had strong ties in their Rishon LeZion neighborhood. The family was headed to Jerusalem for Shabbat to celebrate a bar mitzvah in the Mahane Yisrael jesjieva. When the Sabbath had ended and guests began to leave, the family Nehmad gathered on the street for the havdalah ceremony. The entire family was then inflated: a husband, wife and two daughters. Also slain were two cousins and two children. All are buried in Rishon LeZion.
Avia Malka, a victim of Palestinian terrorism
One of the fatalities from the list below the nine-month-old baby Avia Malka from South Africa.
