The Café Hillel bombing was a Palestinian suicide bombing carried out on September 9, 2003 in a coffee shop in the German Colony neighborhood in Jerusalem. Seven people were killed in the attack and over 50 were injured.
A few hours prior to the Café Hillel bombing, Palestinian militants carried out a suicide attack in a bus stop next to the military base Tzrifin.
On Tuesday evening, 9 September 2003 a Palestinian suicide bomber approached the "Café Hillel" coffee shop in the German Colony neighborhood of Jerusalem. Security guard Alon Mizrahi was attempting to prevent the bomber from entering when he blew himself up. At 11:20 pm the bomber detonated the explosive device he carried on his body.
Among those killed in the attack were Dr. David Applebaum, head of the emergency room at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, and his daughter Nava, who was to have been married the day after the bombing.
In July 2004 Israeli military forces arrested members of a Palestinian militant squad who were involved in the execution and planning of many attacks, including the Café Hillel bombing.
