7 years after suicide bombing in Jerusalem, terror victim dies of her wounds
A girl, who was 14 years old when she was seriously wounded in a terror attack in Jerusalem almost seven years ago, passed away early Wednesday morning.
Hodaya Asulin, a resident of Mevo Horon, was seriously wounded by a bomb that blew up near a payphone close to the International Convention Center in the capital, and had been in a coma since.
A 59-year-old British tourist was also killed, and dozens were wounded in the blast.
Since the attack, Asulin received intensive medical treatment. In the last two weeks, a serious deterioration in her medical state was recorded, causing her to pass away in her hospital bed in Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Her funeral will take place today (Wednesday) at Mevo Horon at 13:30.
