An Israeli father of 10 was killed in front of his children and three others were wounded in a shooting attack by a Palestinian terrorist near Hebron.
An Israeli man was killed and three others wounded in a shooting attack at the Adorayim Junction south of Hevron in Judea.
The fatality has been identified as 40-year-old Michael “Micki” Marc from the nearby town of Otniel, who was traveling in his car with his family when it was targeted.
His wife Chavi was seriously wounded in the attack, and was evacuated to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body.
Two other family members were also wounded in the attack. Paramedics say in addition to the mother of the family, they treated a 13-year-old girl in moderate-to-serious condition suffering from gunshot wounds to her upper body, and a 15-year-old boy who was lightly wounded, presumably from the crash.
According to initial reports, a “Kia” model car overtook the family as they drove along Route 60 and opened fire, striking both parents and causing the car to overturn.
As many as 20 shots were fired at the car, investigators say.
The latest attack comes just hours after an attempted stabbing at the Tomb of the Patriarchs in nearby Hebron.
In that incident, a female Arab terrorist was shot dead when she drew a knife and attempted to stab Israeli soldiers guarding the holy site. There were no Israeli casualties in that incident.
On Thursday, a 13-year-old Israeli girl was murdered as she slept in her bed in the town of Kiryat Arba, by an Arab terrorist armed with a knife.
