Oct 21, 2002 – Cpl. Ilona Hanukayev, 20, of Hadera, was one of 14 persons killed when a bus was blown up in a suicide attack by a terrorist driving an explosives-laden jeep near the Karkur junction.
Ilona immigrated to Israel with her parents and a sister from Baku, Azerbaijan, in 1990, and the family settled in Givat Olga. Ilona, who graduated from high school in Hadera, was an outstanding student who dreamed of continuing her studies after her army service, an aunt recalled yesterday.
Cpl. Ilona Hanukayev was buried in the Hadera Military Cemetery.
She is survived by her parents, Sergei and and Raisa, and her sister, Yulia (17).
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. firstname.lastname@example.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.
