The four civilians murdered in a terror attack in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba Tuesday afternoon were identified as Doris Yahbas, 49; Laura Yitzhak, 43; Rabbi Moshe Kravitzky, and Menachem Yehezkel, 67.
The terrorist, Muhammad Abu Al-Kiyan, 34, hailed from the nearby Bedouin town of Hura.
Kravitzky, 50, a Chabad emissary and father of four, ran a restaurant in Beersheba on behalf of Colel Chabad, a charity founded in 1788 that provides food to the needy. The terrorist ran Kravitzky over while he was cycling before moving on to stab his other victims.
Yitzhak, a mother of three, was stabbed numerous times at a gas station while filling her car.
The murderer continued his stabbing spree at a plaza.
Magen David Adom paramedic Israel Ozen was the first to arrive at the scene to treat a critically wounded woman. During treatment, he realized that the victim – Yahbas — was his aunt, his mother’s sister.
There were no signs of life, Ozen said. “I was shocked, but I had to continue to function and take care of my uncle,” who was present.
Yahbas left three children behind.
