Israel army in pursuit of Palestinian who killed two Israelis

Medics and security forces arrive at the scene of a shooting attack in the Barkan Industrial Park in the northern West Bank

Since the attack was allegedly carried out by a Palestinian employed at the Barkan industrial zone, questions were raised over whether he knew the victims and over the motivation behind the shooting. "We know that he is still armed and is considered risky", Conricus said.

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. They were shot dead by a Palestinian gunman at the Barkan Industrial Park near the settlement-city of Ariel.

Gaza's Hamas rulers and other militant groups praised Sunday's attack, but none claimed responsibility for it.

Security footage shows the shooter fleeing, still armed with a rifle. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has no doubts that the perpetrators of the attack "will be caught and put to justice".

"This was a serious terrorist attack", the military said in a statement.

"The fact that Fatah did not condemn the murder of the two Israelis is no surprise, because Fatah and the PA continue to glorify terrorist murderers as "heroes," Palestinian Media Watch said".

Speaking with Channel 10 television, Bodankin said the suspect had entered the offices to fix an electrical problem, only to open fire at a secretary and senior manager sitting nearby.

"One of the workers was sacked and he didn't like the owner".

"Shooting her at close range and killing her, he turned to a second female in her 50s, who had entered to investigate odd noises in the office, and shot her in the stomach". "That's what I think happened".

The woman who was killed in the attack was identified as Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, 28, from Rosh Ha'ayin, and the man was named as Ziv Hajbi, 35, from Rishon Lezion.

Barkan industrial park is next to the settlement of Barkan and was established in the early 1980s.
