Description

The attack took place at 8:20 am in the La Paz district of San Sebastián, when three ETA members machine-gunned a minibus with six military personnel, killing José Manuel Ibarzábal Duque, seaman second-class in the Navy, and Rafael Melchor García, radio operator first-class. The two men were on their way to the navy headquarters in Pasajes in the official vehicle. After it was machine-gunned, the car crashed into a tree. Both victims were very young: José Manuel was 20 and Rafael, who had two children, was 26.
