The father of an innocent hairdresser caught up in a brutal execution in Sydney’s south-west says she was “beautiful” and an “angel” ready to help anyone in need.

Amy Al-Hazzouri, 39, was in the backseat of a four-wheel drive with 48-year-old Lametta Fadlallah in Panania when a shooter sprayed the car with bullets and killed them both on Saturday night.

Al-Hazzouri’s father, Khaled, told 9News his daughter was an angel, friendly and beautiful.

“Beautiful, beautiful,” the grieving father said.

“Anyone who used to be upset, depressed, anything would go to Amy and she would give them the support, the power and energy.

“They would go to Amy, Amy was everything to them, that’s the kind of person she was.”

Khaled said he wished he had died instead of his daughter and just wants her back.

Al-Hazzouri’s brother-in-law, Mounir Sajad, said she was “very loved” and the family is obviously devastated.

“No one can believe what has happened, it is very hard,” he said.

“Her father, he doesn’t believe he has lost his love.”

Fadlallah is the former partner of drug dealer and standover man Helal Safi and former wife of notorious drug dealer Shadi Derbas.

Police believe she was the intended target.

Al-Hazzouri’s family said she was at Fadlallah’s home to blow dry her hair before they went out, working overtime and nights as she often did, to support her father and her family in Lebanon.

“She was a hard worker, a good lady, always looking after her sister and brother and sometimes looked after her father,” Sajad said.

They said they had begged her not to make house calls.

“She worked with this woman, someone give her advice not to, but she didn’t (listen),” Sajad said.

Homicide detective Danny Doherty called the double murder “unprecedented” and said police are now targeting known underworld families to try and stop what may be an inevitable bloody escalation of gun violence.

Doherty said “some type of retribution” is now the fear.
