Palestinian kills two Israelis in West Bank

Manhunt underway after West Bank shooting

A Palestinian gunman on Sunday shot and killed two Israelis and injured one other before fleeing the scene of the attack at a West Bank industrial park, the Israeli military said.

Sunday's attack took place at the Alon Group factory in the Barkan Industrial Zone, where some 3,300 Palestinians work alongside Israelis.

A third woman also shot in the attack was hospitalised in stable condition.

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

IDF spokesman Brig Gen Ronen Manelis said the Shin Bet internal security service had concluded that the attack was an act of terrorism, but added that the gunman might have had "additional motives" that were not nationalistic.

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

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

Has Theresa May promised to end austerity?
United Kingdom correspondent Rod Liddle told Mike Hosking Theresa May has most of her Cabinet and Conservative Party behind her. In a message to voters tired of belt-tightening, the PM said: "Because you made sacrifices, there are better days ahead".

The source said PA security officials believe Na'alwa would be more willing to surrender to Palestinian forces thinking they would be less eager to turn him over to Israel or out of fear that he would be killed during Israeli attempts to apprehend him.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad group called the attack a "natural response" to Israeli crimes in Gaza, Jerusalem and Khan al-Ahmar, a Bedouin village in the West Bank slated for demolition.

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

Some Israeli media reported the Palestinian suspect had been recently fired from his job at the site, raising speculation the attack may have been motivated by a personal vendetta.

The military launched an investigation of the attack to determine, among other things, how the gun was smuggled into the industrial park and whether the terrorist meant to take Levengrond Yehezkel hostage, having used zip-ties to bind her hands.

Last month, a Palestinian teenager stabbed to death the US-born settler Ari Fuld, a well-known pro-Israel advocate, at a shopping centre in Gush Etzion.
