Israelis killed in West Bank shooting

The Barkan Industrial Park next to the West Bank settlement of Ariel

A Palestinian attacker opened fire inside a West Bank industrial zone Sunday morning where Israelis and Palestinians work together, killing two Israelis and seriously wounding a third, the military said.

The assailant, the military said, had worked in a factory where the shooting took place.

Conricus called it a terrorist attack but said other unspecified factors were involved.

Naalwa used a homemade gun, known locally as a "Carlo", according to the army, in what security forces believe was a "lone-wolf attack", meaning he was not part of a militant organisation or acting on its behalf.

Magen David Adom emergency medical services said their medics had entered a building at Barkan where they found a man and a woman without pulse, and pronounced them dead. "I am sure we will catch him and bring him to justice soon".

Israel's President Reuven Rivlin and USA ambassador David Friedman both condemned the shooting in the Barkan industrial zone, where thousands of Palestinians and an equal numbers of Jewish Israelis have worked side-by-side for decades, as an attack on coexistence.

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

Palestinians often face tough choices in finding employment in the economically struggling West Bank and jobs in Israeli settlements can provide steady income.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the Israeli army and police are searching for the shooter. He held a valid work permit and had been absent from work in the days leading up to the attack, the army said.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said: "This was not only an attack on innocent people going about their daily lives, it was also an attack on the possibility of Israelis and Palestinians co-existing peacefully".

A number of attacks have occurred at that location, the Gush Etzion Junction.

Israeli leaders blame Palestinian violence, "incitement" and intransigence for the lack of progress in peace efforts.
