Two Israelis were shot and killed by a Palestinian terrorist inside a factory in the Barkan Industrial Park in Samaria near Ariel. The victims were reported to be a man and a woman in their 30’s. A 54-year-old woman is reported in serious condition. The terrorist arrived and fled on a motorcycle. Police are currently conducting a manhunt.

There are reports that the weapon was an automatic or rifle and not a handgun. There is an unconfirmed report is that the shooter was a former employee of the factory, age 21, from nearby Qalqilya.

Approximately 4,000 Israelis and 4,000 Palestinians work side-by-side at the industrial park.

“This is a very difficult incident. Until now there have not been any security incidents here. For decades, industrial zones have served as a bridge of coexistence,” Samaria Regional Council chairman Yossi Dagan said to Times of Israel.

In 2015, a Palestinian stabbed two security guards at the Barkan industrial park. Guards at the site shot and killed the attacker during that incident.
