Israel raids Palestinian village after deadly shooting

Kim Levengrond Yehezkel 28 from Rosh Ha’ayin who was killed in a terror attack at the Barkan industrial park

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

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.

The third victim, a woman in her 50s, was moderately wounded and taken to Petah Tikva's Beilinson Hospital for treatment.

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

The 23-year-old Palestinian used a homemade gun, known locally as a "Carlo", according to Conricus, in the apparent "lone-wolf attack".

The army called the shooting a "terrorist attack", adding however that other unspecified factors were involved.

Security forces launched a manhunt for the shooter, who fled the scene after the attack. "I am sure we will catch him and bring him to justice soon".

Advocates of Israeli settlement policies say the industrial zones are an example of the benefits Palestinians have under Israeli control, including much-needed employment to Palestinians.

Palestinian militant groups praised the attack, calling it revenge for Israeli "crimes" towards the Palestinians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for his part, vowed to bring the attacker to justice.

Israeli captured the West Bank in the 1967 Six-Day War.

"Thousands of Israelis and Palestinians work side by side at Barkan, an industrial zone in the West Bank that includes some 160 factories".

"No way in our industrial zone", he said, describing an atmosphere of camaraderie in Barkan". "The suspect arrived at the industrial park and opened fire at three civilians".

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.

A wave of Palestinian attacks against Israelis broke out in 2015, but they have since become sporadic.

Israel settlements are considered illegal under global law and major stumbling blocks to peace as they are built on land the Palestinians see as part of their future state.

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