Yoav Hattab, one of the victims of the terror attack on the HyperCacher kosher supermarket in Paris on Friday, is not the first victim of his family to be killed in a terror attack.

Hattab’s aunt Yehudit Buchris was killed when she was 14 years old in a terror attack on the Ghriba synagogue on the Tunisian island of Djerba on October 8, 1985.

According to Ynet, Yehudit’s mother made aliyah 15 years after the attack. Yehudit’s remains were brought for burial in Israel six months ago.
