Two sisters and their husbands have been named as four of the victims of the multi-pronged terror attack which killed 8 Israelis near Eilat on Thursday.

Moshe Gez, 53, and Flora Gez, 52, as well as Dov Karlinski, 58, and Shula Karlinski, 54 were killed while on the way to a vacation in Sinai. The couples, hailing from Kfar Saba, were killed when terrorists opened fire on their vehicle on Route 12 near the border with Egypt.

The time of the four terror victims' funerals were yet to be determined.

An additional victim, Yossef Levy, 57, from Holon was named earlier on Friday. On Thursday, St.-Sgt. Moshe Naftali, 22, and Counter-Terrorism officer, Paskal Avrahami, 49 were also announced to have died in the violence.

The eighth victim of the attacks, a bus driver, was yet to be named.
