On Thursday night, a terrorist entered the David Palace hall on Weizmann Avenue in Hadera and began spraying the 180 guests celebrating the bat-mitzva of 12-year-old Nina Kardashova with automatic gunfire. The terrorist, who also carried grenades, was pushed outside by guests and killed by police who quickly arrived at the scene.

Edward Bakshayev, the step-grandfather of the bat-mitzva girl, had just given his grandchild a pair of gold earrings. A few minutes later he was shot to death by the terrorist.
