Two Israelis, a father and his son, were killed near a West Bank settlement in a shooting attack.

The incident occurred Friday afternoon near Otniel, which is located 10 miles southwest of Hebron, as unidentified individuals opened fire on a grey Hyundai family van with seven passengers from the same family and another vehicle, Haaretz reported.

The father was in his 40s. His son who died in the attack was 18. A third person was lightly injured from a bullet that entered his leg. The shooters fled the scene.

The family was headed to a nearby settlement to celebrated the wedding of a relative.

Israel Defence Forces troops surrounded the nearby Palestinian town of Yatta and are searching for suspects.
