Bulgaria: Beit She'an Survivor Spared in Bulgaria Terror Attack

One of the survivors of Wednesday's terror attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria's Burgas, Gadi Sivoni, also survived a terror attack in his home town of Beit She'an ten years ago.

60-year-old Sivoni and his wife Rimond, who have three children, were on vacation with several relatives in Bulgaria. The Sivonis and their three companions were on bus number two, the one that blew up on Wednesday in Sofia, Arutz Sheva informs.

Immediately after reports on the attack began to emerge, family members were concerned that the Sivonis might have been there. Morris Cohen, Sivoni's son-in-law, told Yisrael Hayom that "my relatives, who were with the Sivonis, were lightly injured by shattering glass. One of them jumped out a window and broke his leg."

Gadi Sivoni was badly injured in an attack on the Likud headquarters in Beit She'an in November 2002, in an attack by the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades. Six people were killed and 43 were wounded including Sivoni, who was given 100% disability by the National Insurance Institute for his injuries.

"It's hard to understand the feelings of a person who was close to death after one terror attack, when he experiences a second one," Cohen said.
