  • Israeli security forces search the northern West Bank after a fatal shooting attack in Barkan Industrial Park in the northern West Bank

A Palestinian gunman shot two Israelis and wounded a third early Sunday in the Barkan industrial zone, next to a Jewish settlement in the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military said.

The military called the shooting a terrorist attack and said the assailant, a 23-year-old from a nearby Palestinian town, was an employee of the factory where the assault 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.

"Security forces are in pursuit of the despicable murderer, and I am sure that they will catch him and bring him to justice", he said at his weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday.

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.

A woman aged 54 was also found wounded, the medical services said.

That was, quite clearly, a nightmare scenario for the Yankees , who entered the night looking to take a 2-1 series lead. Both the Judge and Sanchez homers came on 91-mph fastballs, a couple of ticks below Price's 93-mph average this season.

The industrial zone is located next to the Israeli settlement Barkan and near the settlement of Ariel in the north of the West Bank.

The army, however, said the alleged shooter was still employed at the site as of Sunday, but noted he had been away from work in recent days.

Israeli captured the West Bank in the 1967 Six-Day War. "The suspect arrived at the industrial park and opened fire at three civilians".

In a separate operation in the village of Beit Sira near Ramallah in pursuit of a terror financing ring, IDF troops overnight Monday-Tuesday uncovered thousands of shekels in cash that the army said were meant to fund terror networks in the West Bank.

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

The army has launched an investigation into how Na'alwa was able to smuggle his weapon into the gated industrial park and into whether he had bound Levengrond Yehezkel with the intention of taking her hostage.

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