22-year-old student murdered by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad

Faces of the Victims has published the story of Inbal Weiss, a 22-year-old student who was deliberately murdered by a genocide bomber from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

On November 29, 2001, a bus was traveling on a major highway between the Israeli coastal cities of Hadera and Afula when a "massive explosion" tore through the vehicle, police said. The bus, No. 823, had left from Nazareth and was headed to Tel Aviv.

Inbal Weiss, 22 Murdered by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad
Inbal Weiss was on her way to her parents' home for the weekend from Afula, where she had recently rented an apartment. Her parents were waiting for her at the Gan Shmuel junction and saw a lot of ambulances driving by. They were unable to reach her on her cellular phone, and rushed to the nearby Hillel Yaffe hospital in Hadera, where they learned that their eldest daughter had been killed.

"She was a person with a warm heart, who never thought a bad thought and believed very much in the need for Jewish-Arab co-existence," said her mother Marion. Inbal, who served as a teacher in the army was a student in human resources at the Jezreel Valley regional college. She loved to read and to dance.

Inbal Weiss was laid to rest in the Zichron Ya'akov cemetery. She is survived by her parents, her sister Avital, 19, and twin brothers, Ami and Daniel, 17.
