It is known that the family has moved from London to Israel in 2005.

So far no group has claimed responsibility, but a Hamas spokesman hailed the attack as “retaliation for the crimes committed by Israel”.

Barriers were set up today when a huge manhunt was launched to hunt down the attackers.

Leo said in a statement today that he is confident “justice will be served”.

“Some people think that a religious government will suppress the rights of minorities and become totalitarian.

“But this is not a risk in Israel because devout Jews simply believe in a balance between love and justice.

“For our part, we have felt the warm embrace of love from the Jews of Israel and beyond and we are confident that justice will be done.”

Leo – who attended university in the UK – was said to be driving in front of Lucy and their daughters when he realized there was a scuffle behind him.
