Terror Victim Buried in Jerusalem

Written by Andrew Friedman/TPS on October 09, 2016

Twenty-nine-year-old Jerusalem police officer Yosef Kirma was laid to rest in the police section of the Mount Herzl Military Cemetery Sunday.

Levana Malihi, a retired Knesset worker in her 60s, will be buried in a private family service later this evening.

Kirma and Malihi were killed and six people wounded when a 39-year-old man from the Silwan neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem opened fire at a Jerusalem train station, and later at police officers who had pursued him.

“Levana worked here for more than 30 years,” said Albert Sacharovitch, director general of the Knesset. “Even after she retired in 2010 she continued to attend events here at the Knesset, right up until recent times.

“Knesset workers are stunned by this horrible murder and we feel the pain of the Malihi family. We send our condolences to the family. May her memory be blessed.”
