Two sisters from the West Bank settlement of Efrat who were shot dead in a terror attack on Friday are named as 20-year-old Maia Dee, and 15-year-old Rina Dee.

Their mother Lucy, 48, remains hospitalized in critical condition, the Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem says.

The United Kingdom Foreign Office confirmed Friday that the three were British nationals. Family members from the UK are reportedly heading to Israel tonight.

In the Friday attack near the settlement of Hamra in the northern Jordan Valley, the Palestinian gunmen first opened fire at the Israeli-owned car before it crashed into the highway’s shoulder. The terrorists then opened fire at the car again, killing the two sisters and critically wounding their mother. Troops scanning the area found 22 7.62mm shell casings, typically used by a Kalashnikov rifle.
