Manhunt underway after West Bank shooting

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

Palestinian terror organizations on Sunday welcomed the deadly attack in the Barkan Industrial Zone in Samaria and praised the terrorist who shot and killed two Israelis and seriously wounded a third.

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.

Both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman denounced the attack and said the perpetrator would be brought to justice.

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.

Police initially suspected that the shooting may have been a revenge attack on the man's employers, but army spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus later called it a "terrorist attack" adding that other unspecified factors were involved.

Security forces launched a manhunt for the shooter, who fled the scene after the attack.

A manager at another company in the industrial zone, Moshe Lev-Ran, suggested the attack might not have been politically motivated.

When this happens, the FBI may be asked to conduct an additional, supplemental investigation, narrowly targeted to those matters. But White House spokesman Raj Shah said: "What critics want is a never-ending fishing expedition into high school drinking".

Surveillance video from the factory after the attack showed the gunman fleeing down a flight of stairs and then running past shocked onlookers.

The businesses in the Barkan Industrial Park, located near Ariel, employ some 8,000 people, approximately half of them Israelis and the other half Palestinians.

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.

Speaking at Barkan, Yossi Dagan, head of a regional council for Israeli settlements in the area, said there were "Jewish and Palestinian workers standing outside together and crying".

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

More than 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements built since Israel's 1967 occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Mother Hava and relatives and friends mourn during the funeral of Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, aged 28, one of the two Israelis killed earlier in a terrorist attack, on October 7, 2018, in Rosh Haayin.
