Three Palestinian family members were killed in a shooting attack outside the village of Eilabun, in the Galilee region in the northern occupied Palestine, according to witnesses.
Arab 48 website said a 58-year-old man, his wife, 46, and their daughter, 16, were killed in the shooting which targeted them while they were inside their vehicle. A second daughter, 9, sustained moderate injuries during the shooting attack.
Over 38 Palestinian nationals of Israel have been killed since the beginning of the year in an ongoing crime wave, blamed for Israeli Police tolerance of criminality and suspected collaboration with criminal gangs.
Palestinians in today's Israel are those who stayed on their land following the creation of the occupying state in 1948 and their descendants. They make up about 20 percent of the country's nine million people.
By law, their rights are equal to those of Jewish citizens. But in practice they suffer discrimination in employment, housing, policing and other essentials.
Palestinians have long blamed the Israeli police for turning a blind eye to gun violence among Arab Israelis and even complicity with criminal gangs.
