Thousands turned out to mourn an American-Israeli who was put to rest on Thursday morning after she was killed in a terrorist attack.
The funeral for 20-year-old Sgt. Rose Ida Lubin was held at Mount Herzl, Israel’s national cemetery. Lubin’s family traveled from Atlanta, Georgia, to lay Lubin to rest, with her father explaining that she knew she wanted to join the Israeli army since she was five years old.
“When Rose would meet new kids on the playground, she explained to them that they could be friends now, because she was going to be moving to Israel when she turned eighteen and join the Israeli army.”
Lubin was working as a border police officer when she was killed in a stabbing attack outside Jerusalem’s Old City.
