Mosquera, who came to Israel to complete her conversion to Judaism, was laid to rest on the Mt. of Olives.

Among those in attendance at the funeral was Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and the Ecuadorian ambassador to Israel.

The Foreign Ministry said that Mosquera’s parents and sister were flown out at the expense of the State of Israel, in keeping with protocol when a foreign citizen is seriously wounded in a terror attack.
