An Israeli man and his infant son killed when their car crashed on a West Bank road were victims of a terror attack, Israel’s Defense Ministry said.

The ministry made the announcement Wednesday after receiving the results of a police investigation into the incident.

The Sept. 23 crash near the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba occurred after a thrown rock crashed through the windshield of the car; investigators found a large blood-stained rock in the overturned car. Blood samples from the rock and the driver were compared.

The Israeli military and police had said originally that the crash, which killed Asher Palmer, 25, and his infant son, Yonatan, was an accident.
