A festering wound opened anew

For Israel’s LGBT community, it’s a painful, lingering trauma; for the Tel Aviv police, it’s a flagship case gone cold.

The 2009 Bar Noar shooting that took the lives of 17-yearold Liz Troubishi from Holon and 26-year-old Nir Katz from Givatayim and wounded 15 others has drawn new attention this week, following the massacre of 49 people in a gay night club in Orlando, Florida.

Imri Kalmann, the chairman of Aguda – The Israeli National LGBT Task Force, said that he doesn’t know of any recent efforts by the police and the community to identify the man who attacked the “Youth Get Together” event at Bar Noar on August 1, 2009.
