The mother of two British-Israeli sisters who were killed in a shooting on the occupied West Bank has died in hospital.
Lucy Dee, 48, was pronounced dead by authorities today following the incident on Friday.
Her daughters Maia and Rina Dee were killed by suspected Palestinian gunmen on Friday afternoon near the Hamra Junction in the north of the Jordan Valley, as they drove to Tiberias.
They were the children of Rabbi Leo Dee, originally from London, who described them as ‘wonderful’.
The hospital announced the further devastating news that their mum, Lucy had now died after being injured in the attack.
Hundreds of people attended their funeral, and it comes amid heightened tensions in Israel during the rare coincidence of Passover, Ramadan and Easter.
In a statement it said: ’48-year-old Lucy Dee was evacuated by helicopter to Hadassah Ein Kerem in critical condition, where the teams fought for her life over the past few days, in the trauma unit, the operating room and the intensive care unit where she was treated.
‘Unfortunately, despite intensive and unceasing efforts, due to her fatal injury, the team had to determine her death today.’
