Police have opened an investigation into the killing of the two men, whose family is known to be in an ongoing conflict with the Hiri family, the report said.

The two men were apparently sitting in their car at the entrance to Taibeh when another car approached and stopped, with shots being fired at the Abed el-Kedar men, who were critically wounded.

The car from which the shots are believed to have been fired quickly left the scene.

Large police forces arrived to the site of the shooting and were searching for the suspected attackers.
