Palestinian kills two Israelis in West Bank shooting: army

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

Clashes often erupt between Palestinian youth who attempt to block soldiers' passage, throwing stones and empty bottles and are met with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters, often resulting in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries.

The Palestinian used a homemade gun in the attack, known locally as a Carlo, according to Conricus.

Naawla was reportedly an employee at the Barkan Industrial Zone, located near Ariel settlement, where he allegedly carried out the shooting on Sunday.

A woman aged 54 was also found wounded and in moderate condition, the medical services said. The Barkan Industrial Park includes approximately 120 businesses and factories and a workforce of 20,000, half of them Palestinian Arabs.

Speaking at Israel's weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the shooting "a very severe terror attack" and said he was certain the perpetrator would be caught.

The Israeli army has launched a manhunt for the attacker.

Israeli forces detained rights activist Hasan Karajeh after raiding his home in Safa, West Bank.




The incident came amid tensions in the Gaza Strip, where Palestinians have been staging daily rallies against the blockade imposed by Israel since 2007, and Israeli forces killed at least 190 people since the protest started on March 30.

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.

Israeli media said the shooter was a former worker at the factory before he was sacked recently.

She survived by taking cover under a table while he opened fire on Hajbi, killing him.

Bennett was then asked if he would also instruct the Israeli army to adopt a shoot to kill policy against Palestinian children, to which he replied: "They are not children - they are terrorists".

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