The UK government says it is “saddened” by the death of two British citizens in a terror shooting in the West Bank earlier today.
Two British-Israeli sisters, aged 15 and 21, were shot to death while driving in the Jordan Valley. The sisters’ mother was critically wounded in the shooting and is currently being treated in the hospital.
“We are saddened to hear about the deaths of two British-Israeli citizens and the serious injuries sustained by a third individual. The UK calls for all parties across the region to de-escalate tensions,” the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office says in a statement, according to the UK’s Sky News.
