Aug 31, 2004 – Denise Hadad, 50 of Beersheba was one of 16 people killed in twin suicide bus bombings in Beersheba city buses. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.
The two explosions took place within minutes of each other on two Beersheba city buses on route nos. 6 and 12, shortly before 3:00 P.M. The buses were traveling along Beersheba’s main street Rager Blvd, near the city hall. About 100 people were wounded.
Denise Hadad was on her way home from work at one of the senior citizens’ homes where she worked caring for the elderly. Before boarding the bus home, she stopped to buy school books for her 14-year-old son Ronen for the new school year. Her husband who works at the Soroka Medical Center, searched for her among the wounded brought to the hospital, but to no avail.
Denise’s good friend Tova Sofer related: “She was a charming women, full of life. Two weeks she celebrated the birth of her granddaughter and she was so happy. She devoted her whole life to her children.”
Denise Hadad was buried in Beersheba. She is survived by her husband Asher and their four children aged 14-26 – Shlomi, Mital, Hadas and Ronen – and two grandchildren.
