Oct 21, 2002 – Sgt. Esther (Etti) Pesachov, 19, a border policewoman from Givat Olga, was one of 14 people killed when a bus was blown up in a suicide attack by a terrorist driving an explosives-laden jeep near the Karkur junction.
Pesachov had boarded the No. 841 Egged bus at the stop adjacent to the Border Police Memorial in Wadi Ara, where she served with two others killed in the attack, St.-Sgt. Aiman Sharuf and St.-Sgt. Liat Ben-Ami. Pesachov ran the album room – responsible for the albums, for updating computers, and for maintaining contact with bereaved families.
“We served together for half a year,” said a comrade from her unit.
“She was so devoted to her job. She visited the bereaved families, cared for them. She was an angel in uniform.”
Pesachov’s cousin, Shoshana Reis, was murdered by a terrorist car bomber in Hadera two years ago.
Sgt. Esther Pesachov was buried in the Hadera Cemetery.
She is survived by her parents, Shmova and Ella, a sister, Raya, 20, and two brothers, Sharon, 14, and Orel, 8.
