January 31, 1979
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The death toll in Sunday’s bomb blast in Netanya rose to three last night when 19-year-old Yehezkel Moshe succumbed to his injuries. There are still 13 victims of the out rage in hospitals today.

President Yitzhak Navon and Premier Menachem Begin sent flower wreaths to the funeral of Mrs. Tova Riegler, one of the two persons killed by the explosion Sunday.

There is a poignant footnote to her death in that her son, Dr. Avraham Riegler confirmed the death of Shimon Barbi, the other fatality on Sunday, at Hillel Yaffe Hospital in Hadera. When he finished at his own hospital, he went to Netanya’s Laniado Hospital, to offer his help. There he was asked to help identity a dead woman who turned out to be his mother.
