Limor Hatuel Gives Birth to Daughter
David Hatuel, whose wife and four children were murdered in a 2004 terrorist attack, welcomed a daughter to the world on Thursday. The baby girl and her mother Limor are in good health.
Hatuel’s first wife, Tali Hatuel, was murdered while driving near her home in Gush Katif in an attack that shook the nation. The couple’s four daughters, ranging in age from two to eleven years old, were killed as well.
Tali Hatuel was eight months pregnant with the Hatuel’s first son at the time of the attack. She and her daughters were shot at point-blank range by Islamic Jihad terrorists, who launched their attack from abandoned buildings near the road which the Israeli Supreme Court had forbidden the army to remove.
After mourning his family, David Hatuel explained that he had two options: to fall and let the tragedy destroy him, or to choose life. His friends described the new Hatuel family as “tired but exuberant” on Thursday afternoon.
