Paramedics from Magen David Adom (MDA) provided medical assistance at the scene.

The paramedics attempted to resuscitate the mother, Yamama Grifat, and her daughter, Jazelle, but were forced to confirm their deaths on site.

An MDA helicopter was on route to the scene to transport the injured victims to a medical facility.
