Aug 31, 2004 – Shoshana Amos, 64 of Beersheba was one of 16 people killed in twin suicide bus bombings in Beersheba city buses. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack.
The two explosions took place within minutes of each other on two Beersheba city buses on route nos. 6 and 12 shortly before 3:00 P.M. The buses were traveling along Beersheba’s main street Rager Blvd, near the city hall. About 100 people were wounded.
Shoshana Amos was a well-known figure in Beersheba, where she worked for years as an aide in the municipal social welfare department. “She helped everyone. She was a true saint,” said a neighbor.
She was killed on her way to the beauty parlor where she was going to have her hair done for a family wedding engagement party that night. Instead of the party, family and friends gathered at her home to mourn. Shoshana was devoted to her grandchildren. Her son Yoram related that just a week before she had bought school bags for her 11 grandchildren for the new school year.
Shoshana Amos was buried in Yavne. She is survived by her husband, four children and grandchildren.
