Noa and Nir Baranes are named as the victims of yesterday’s deadly Hezbollah rocket attack on the Golan Heights.

The couple from Kibbutz Ortal, both aged 46, are survived by their three children.

They were killed when a Hezbollah rocket struck their car near the Nafah Junction, just south of their hometown.

Hezbollah claimed to have targeted a nearby army base.

Their deaths bring the toll of attacks from Lebanon amid the war in Gaza to 28, which includes 12 civilians.
