April 07, 2023: Rina Dee, 15, was one of two Israeli sisters from the Efrat illegal colony near Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank, who were killed in a shooting incident in the Jordan Valley in the West Bank. Their mother was wounded in the attack.
The two sisters were the daughters of British-Israeli Rabbi Leo Dee, and they were in a car traveling with their mother to a hiking spot in the Jordan Valley when the car was shot at by unknown assailants and ran off the road, killing both of the daughters.
The BBC said Maia was 20 years old and volunteering for national service in a high school.
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.
The two women and their mother, Lucy, 45, who suffered serious wounds, were airlifted by a military helicopter to the hospital.
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 14 Israelis, including 3 children, have been killed by someone from the other side in 2023.
Rina was from London and had recently moved to the illegal Israeli colony of Efrat with her family. Source: IMEMC
