Two killed, one wounded in a terror shooting in the West Bank
Two people were killed and one was seriously wounded in a terror attack in the Barkan Industrial Park in the Samaria region of the West Bank on Sunday morning.
The fatalities were identified as 29 year-old Kim Levengrond Yehezkel of the central Israeli city of Rosh Ha’ayin and 35 year-old Ziv Hajbani from Rishon Letzion.
It’s the first terror attack in the park —which employees both Israelis and Palestinians —and is considered to be an oasis of coexistence where both Israelis and Palestinians come together.
The Palestinian suspect identified in Israeli media as 23 year-old Ashraf Abu Shaham from the village of Shweika near the West Bank city of Tulkarem, had no previous security-related history and had a permit to work the Barkan park, where he was employed at a factory for the past seven months as an electrician,though he had not shown up work for the past few weeks.
