Two Israeli sisters who were shot and killed at point-blank range by a Palestinian terrorist on Friday morning while on their way to a family outing were identified as Maya Dee, 20, and Rina Dee, 15, from Efrat.

Their mother, Lucy, 48, was also shot in the attack and is fighting for her life in hospital.

The three were dual UK-Israeli citizens. Family members from the UK headed to Israel on Saturday night, ahead of the funeral.

The sisters will be buried on Sunday afternoon at the cemetery of the Kfar Ezion in the Gush Etzion bloc, south of Jerusalem.

The attack took place near the Israeli town of Hamra in the Jordan Valley, when a Palestinian terrorist rammed into the victims’ car before firing at the passengers. The Dee family were split into two different vehicles enroute to a family excursion on the first day of the intermediary days of Passover.

Later on Friday, an Italian tourist was killed and seven other tourists were wounded in a car-ramming attack in Tel Aviv.
