Levana Malihi, a retired Knesset worker and in her 60s, was buried in a private family service later in the evening in Jerusalem’s Har Menuchot cemetery. She was a mother of three and grandmother of six.

Kirma and Malihi were killed and six people wounded on Sunday morning when a 39-year-old man from the Silwan neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem opened fire at a Jerusalem train station, and later at police officers who had pursued him.

“Levana worked here for more than 30 years,” said Albert Sacharovitch, director general of the Knesset. “Even after she retired in 2010 she continued to attend events here at the Knesset, right up until recent times.

“Knesset workers are stunned by this horrible murder and we feel the pain of the Malihi family. We send our condolences to the family. May her memory be blessed.”
