Palestinian guns down two Israelis

World | Agence France-Presse 8 Oct 2018

A shooting attack by a 23-year-old Palestinian at an industrial zone in the Israeli-occupied West Bank killed two Israelis and wounded a third.

An army officer said it was "terrorist attack" but that other factors were involved in a "lone-wolf" hit.

The Palestinian, who used a homemade gun known as a Carlo in the attack, was on the run last night.

The dead were a man and a woman while a woman, 54, was wounded.

The industrial zone is next to the Israeli settlement of Barkan in the north of the West Bank. Palestinians work side by side with Israelis there.

A Palestinian teenager stabbed an Israeli to death at a bloc of Israeli settlements near Jerusalem last month.
