Funeral held for British-Israeli woman who died after West Bank attack that killed daughters

After Lucy Dee, a British-Israeli woman, was killed in an attack on the West Bank with her daughters, Lucy Dee’s funeral has been held.

Three days after she was airlifted from critical condition to the hospital, she died in an Israeli hospital.

Maia and Rina Dee were 20 and 15 years respectively.

Rabbi Leo Dee was the father and husband of the family and survived the attack.


Karen and Tali Dee, Mrs Dee’s children, were overcome with emotion as they spoke at Tuesday’s funeral in Kfar Etzion, a settlement in West Bank.

Rabbi Dee offered a tribute to Lucy, saying: “Lucy, you were an excellent companion to all, but for myself you were my best friend. We were one another.”

“We created a new life in the promised land. It is not uncommon to say that you can’t imagine living elsewhere. “I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else – especially not now.”

According to Israel’s National Transplant Center, Mrs Dee’s heart and liver, kidneys, kidneys, and lungs were all transplanted prior to her funeral. This saved five lives.

According to her husband, the family decided together. He also said that they had previously discussed organ donation.

He also stated this week that he would be “haunted” if he missed a call to one of his daughters during an attack.

The attack on the family occurred near Hamra, approximately 30 miles north Jerusalem. However, the family lived in Efrat, close to Bethlehem.

Leo Dee served as senior rabbi of Radlett United Synagogue, Hertfordshire, from 2011-2014, and was assistant rabbi in Hendon (north London), from 2008-2011.

In 2014, the family returned to Israel.

Alessandro Parini, an Italian tourist, was also attacked by the Dee family. A car drove into Tel Aviv and killed Parini.

Friday’s strikes came after Israeli strikes on Gaza and Lebanon, which were launched as a response to rocket attacks it had received on Thursday.

Tensions are high after the raids on Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem last week, as both Ramadan and Passover, which coincide with the Muslim and Jewish festivals.

This year has seen violence rise in the region, with at least 90 Palestinians and 19 Israelis and foreigners being killed.
