Faces of the Victims has published the story of Sharon Tubol, a 19-year-old Israeli young woman who was deliberately murdered by a genocide bomber from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

Sharon Tubol, 19 Murdered by a terrorist from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad
On October 21, 2002, Cpl. Sharon Tubol, 19, of Arad, was one of 14 persons killed when a bus was blown up in a suicide attack by a terrorist driving an explosives-laden jeep near the Karkur junction.

Sharon had boarded the bus for home in the Negev city and was killed outright in the explosion. She was on special leave from the army, where she served in the PX on a base in the Golan Heights, to prepare for her sister Miri's wedding. The affair, which had been scheduled for Wednesday, was postponed.

The youngest in the family, Sharon grew up in Arad and graduated from the Mitzpe Ramon High School of the Arts, majoring in theater. She was inducted in the army just a month ago. Army mates described her as a "colorful, warm-hearted person," who loved to go out to the pub in Arad, and with whom "every phone call turned into an laugh-filled event." Her father, Avraham Tubol, a former director of the Masada archeological site, died last year.

Cpl. Sharon Tubol is survived by her mother, two brothers, and a sister. She will be buried in the military section of the Arad Cemetery.
