Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan will be recognized as terror victims, the Defense Ministry confirmed on Wednesday morning in an announcement to the National Insurance Institute. The two were killed when their car overturned on Route 60 outside Kiryat Arba on Friday.

The statement came after the Defense Ministry received the findings of a police investigation which confirmed that the father and son from Kiryat Arba were killed as a result of rock throwing, not a car accident.

More than a thousand people crowded in a parking lot in Kiryat Arba on Sunday evening to bid farewell to the deceased.
