Jewish Father murdered in front of his children in Har Hevron shooting
One person was killed and three others wounded in a shooting attack at the Adorayim Junction south of Hevron in Judea.
The fatality has been identified as 40-year-old Michael "Micki" Marc from the nearby town of Otniel, who was traveling in his car with his family when it was targeted. His wife Chavi was seriously wounded in the attack, and was evacuated to Jerusalem's Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body.
Two other family members were also wounded in the attack. Paramedics say in addition to the mother of the family, they treated a 13-year-old girl in moderate-to-serious condition suffering from gunshot wounds to her upper body, and a 15-year-old boy who was lightly wounded, presumably from the crash.
According to initial reports, a "Kia" model car overtook the family as they drove along Route 60 and opened fire, striking both parents and causing the car to overturn. As many as 20 shots were fired at the car, investigators say.
The victims are a well-known family from the area, who live close to another family from Otniel struck by a deadly terrorist attack during the latest wave of Arab terror.
IDF forces responded quickly and are currently pursuing the terrorists who carried out the attack.
