June 30, 2003 – Krastyu Radkov, 46 a construction worker from Bulgaria was killed in a shooting attack on the Yabed bypass road in northern Samaria, west of Jenin.
Krastyu Radkov was working on a stretch of road that will connect the Samarian communities of Reihan and Hermesh. At about 13:00, he was driving a truck sprinkling water on the road when a Palestinian terrorist opened fire with an automatic weapon. Radkov was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack, carried out by a terror cell from Jenin in opposition to the declared ceasefire announced less than a day before. Yosef Ajami was killed in September 2002 working on the same bypass road.
Krastyu Radkov was born in the town of Levski in Bulgaria and had been working in Israel since 1998. Tamir Barashi, one of the owners of the construction company at which he was employed related that Radkov’s son had been working with him until two months ago when his father who feared for his safety convinced him to return to Bulgaria. Krastyu remained to provide for the family. He had been living recently in Reihan near the construction site where residents described him as a quiet and pleasant person.
Krastyu Radkov is survived by his wife Tatyana, a 24-year-old daughter and a 22-year-old son. He body was returned home for burial.
