Update: 3: Israeli sources have reported that Lucy Dee, 46, the mother of Rina and Maia, succumbed to her serious wounds on April 10.
According to emerging reports by Israeli media outlets, two Israeli women were killed, and one was injured in a shooting incident in the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank.
The reports indicated that emergency teams found three Israeli women with signs of gunshot wounds on them in the northern part of the Jordan Valley of the West Bank.
Update 2: Apr 9, 2023, at 02:14: Israeli sources identified the two British-Israeli sisters as Rina Dee, 20, and Maia Dee, 16, and added that their mother, Leah Dee, 46, is in a very serious condition.
The sources stated that the three are British residents and added that they came to the country when their daughters were young and lived in Efrat. (An illegal colony near Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank.)
Israeli medics were dispatched to the scene of the shooting and found the car of the mother and her daughters hit with many bullets before crashing and hitting another vehicle on the road.
The two sisters were found dead when the medics arrived at the scene and pulled them out of the car, while their mother suffered a multi-system failure before receiving first aid and being rushed to a hospital.
The Israeli army initiated a massive search campaign in the area, looking for two Palestinians believed to be behind the shooting.
Update, Apr 7, 2023, at 11:12: Israeli sources said the two women killed in the attack are sisters and added that their mother suffered serious wounds before being airlifted by a military helicopter to the hospital.
They are from Efrat illegal Israeli colony, built on Palestinian lands near Bethlehem, in the West Bank.
Haaretz said one of them is 15, and the other in her 20s; the mother is 48. They immigrated from the UK and started living in the illegal colony.
A Palestinian man was also wounded in the shooting.
The reports added that the three women were in a car that came under gunfire and said that the army initiated a massive search campaign to locate the persons behind the shooting.
Two of the wounded injured, in their twenties, succumbed to their critical wounds and were officially declared dead at the scene, and one, in her forties, is in critical condition.
According to the army, the shooting occurred not far from the Al-Hamra area, and the military initiated a massive manhunt, including military helicopters, to locate the shooters.
Israeli Police Chief, Kobi Shabtai, called on all Israelis, who are licensed to carry firearms and skilled in using them, to do so.
The incident occurred amidst increasing Israeli violations and invasions of Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied Jerusalem, resulting in dozens of abductions and injuries.
At least 92 Palestinians, including 16 children, and 13 Israelis, including 3 children, have been killed by someone from the other side in 2023.
