Aug 9, 2001 – Giora Balash, 60 of Brazil was one of 15 people killed in a suicide bombing in the heart of Jerusalem, inside a crowded pizza restaurant.

Carrying the explosives in a guitar case, the terrorist entered the Sbarro pizzeria at the corner of King George Avenue and Jaffa Road in downtown Jerusalem just before 2 p.m. The 5 kg.-10 kg. bomb which was packed with nails, screws, and bolts completely gutted the restaurant, which was full of lunchtime diners.

Giora Balash and his wife Flora were in Israel to celebrate the marriage of their son. Flora was injured in the blast.

Giora Balash was buried in Ashkelon.

Israel's Voice commitment to memorialize each victim of terror doesn't end here. We are currently reaching out to those who have been victimized and to every family who's lost loved one(s) due to terror. Your story must be told and we intend to create a documentary for each individual. Silence is no longer an option. Contact us today to set up an appointment. info@israelvoice.org Our preference is to make your story heard in English, but Hebrew is also fine. Videos will be subtitled for the world to understand.
