Manhunt underway after West Bank shooting

Manhunt underway after West Bank shooting

A Palestinian shot dead two Israelis and wounded another at a West Bank settlement's industrial zone on Sunday as security forces hunted the suspected assailant who also worked at the site, the Israeli army said.

Israel's national ambulance service said a man and two women were shot in the attack in area, where almost 5,000 Palestinians are employed in Israeli-owned businesses.

According to local media, a third woman, 54, was injured and transferred to a hospital.

"In addition, large numbers of troops have spread out throughout the area to conduct searches and checks", the army said.

Security forces were searching for the suspected perpetrator, Conricus said.

But other workers in the industrial zone suggested the attack was carried out by a disgruntled employee and was not politically motivated.

The IDF said Sunday that Na'alwa was known to security forces but had no past terror offenses and no formal ties to terrorist groups, saying it appeared to have been a "lone-wolf attack".

Eyewitnesses said that inside he tied the hands of his first victim, 28-year-old Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, before fatally shooting her at close range.

Palestinian militant groups praised the attack, calling it revenge for Israeli "crimes" towards the Palestinians.

Surveillance camera footage broadcast on Israeli television showed a man armed with a rifle fleeing down stairs and running away from the factory.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the attack and vowed deal with the "reprehensible murderer" to "the fullest extent of the law".

Barkan industrial park is next to the settlement of Barkan and was established in the early 1980s.

While insisting the attack was an act of terrorism, he acknowledged there were "other factors involved as well", without elaborating.

Israel settlements are considered illegal under global law and major stumbling blocks to peace as they are built on land the Palestinians see as part of their future state.
