Thousands attend funeral of Israeli Istanbul attack victim

TIRA, ISRAEL

A great many individuals went to the burial service on Tuesday of a 18-year-old Arab Israeli lady who was killed in the Istanbul club assault.

Layan Nasser was observing New Year’s with three companions on a trek to Istanbul when she was slaughtered.

Grievers sobbed as they walked through the avenues of the city of Tira behind a wooden casket. One lady conveyed a sign with a photo of Nasser and the picture of a rose.

Tira Mayor Mamoun Abd El Hai said the city pronounced a day of grieving in memory of Nasser, with banks and metropolitan workplaces shut.

“She had dreams to work, to advance, to study, to raise a family, however shockingly the fear put a conclusion to her fantasies and finished her life,” Abd El Hai told The Associated Press.

The companions who went with Nasser grieved her misfortune.

“The greatest blow is that we lost my closest companion,” one of them, Alaa Abd El Hai, told Israeli Channel 2 TV. Another Israeli going with Nasser was injured in the assault. Abd El Hai said Nasser worked with her as a dental aide.

Nasser’s dad, Zaher Nasser, told Israeli Channel 10 TV he had a terrible feeling about his little girl’s excursion to Istanbul.

“I was exceptionally worried about this outing. I requested that her not go in light of the terrible security circumstance there, however she demanded to run with her companions,” he said.
