Tali Hatuel

Tali Hatuel, was an Israeli social worker who was killed with her four daughters, Hila (11), Hadar (9), Roni (7), and Meirav (2), on May 2 2004, by armed Palestinian militants. She was eight months pregnant with her fifth child.

Hatuel was driving from central Israel to her home of 12 years in the Israeli settlement of Gush Katif (near Rafah in the Gaza Strip), when she and her four girls were shot at and forced off the road. Hatuel was wounded in the initial attack. Militants armed with fully-automatic AK-47 Kalashnikov rifles then approached the vehicle to within point blank range and shot repeatedly, killing Hatuel and her four daughters. Both The Popular Resistance Committees and Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the deaths.

She had just picked up her children from school and was on her way to Ashkelon, to her husband's work; travelling in the vicinity of the Kissufim Crossing. The militants involved had launched their attack from a group of nearby buildings, and were later killed by Israeli Defense Force. The IDF had earlier sought to demolish these buildings, under claims of a security risk, but were prevented from so doing by the Israeli Supreme Court.[1] (http://www.israelnn.com/news.php3?id=62175).

Tributes to Hatuel family

On June 16, 2004, Ben-Gurion University in the Negev awarded Tali Hatuel a posthumous Masters of Arts degree in Social Work. Her husband, David Hatuel, accepted the degree on her behalf.

On July 25, 2004, her husband David Hatuel was given a place of prominence near the Western Wall in the human chain from the Gaza Strip to Jerusalem protesting against Israel's plan to unilaterally disengage in which over 130,000 Israelis took part.
