Oct 7, 2004 – Einat Naor, 28, of Kibbutz Zikim was one of three Israelis killed in the terror bombing at the Ras a-Satan beach – one of two tourist sites in Sinai hit the same night.
At around 22:00, a blast ripped through the Hilton Hotel in the resort town of Taba, near the border with Israel. The powerful blast was caused by car bomb which exploded at the entrance to the hotel, containing an estimated 250-300 kg of explosives, causing the collapse of part of the hotel. At about 23:30, two additional explosions occurred in the camping area of of Ras a-Satan, located about 45 kilometers south.
Einat Naor grew up in Kibbutz Zikim, near Ashkelon. She was scheduled to return over the weekend, to begin communications studies at Sapir College near Sderot.
Einat’s father, Motti, a scuba diver and frequent visitor to Sinai in the past, said that she had planned to stay with a girlfriend in Nuweiba, but the hotel wasn’t sufficiently clean so they opted for the beach huts at Ras -Satan. “It was her first and last visit to Sinai,” he said. Wounded in the head, she died before reaching the hospital in Eilat.
Einat Naor was buried at Kibbutz Zikim. She is survived by her parents, Motti and Tami, and her brother, Oz.
