( In the latest fatal attack during the current terror wave in Israel, a Jewish father and son—ages 40 and 18—were shot dead Friday near the Judea and Samaria community of Othniel in the southern Hebron hills while driving with five other relatives to a family event in Meitar.

The terrorist who ambushed the car is believed to have been waiting on the side of the road for an Israeli vehicle to drive by, Haaretz reported. Two other passengers were wounded and taken to Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva. Amid the search for the perpetrator, the town of Yatta was placed under a closure.
