Manhunt underway after West Bank shooting

Manhunt underway after West Bank shooting

On Sunday, a Palestinian terrorist murdered two Israeli Jews in cold blood, one a 28-year-old mother of a one-year-old son, and another who was a 35-year old father of three.

Yet, according to the New York Times headline, "Israel Says" that it was a Palestinian attack, potentially casting doubt on the facts in the minds of the readers.

CCTV footage showed a man carrying a rifle fleeing the scene.

Israeli police and soldiers were searching for the attacker, a police spokesman said, without identifying him. The terrorist, armed with a homemade weapon, tied up a man and a woman and killed them execution-style.

A woman aged 54 was also found wounded, the medical services said.

The other woman shot in the incident was taken to hospital, where doctors said her injuries were not life-threatening.

Speaking at Israel's weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the shooting "a very severe terror attack". "I am sure we will catch him and bring him to justice soon".

Severino's last outing against the Red Sox was a good one on September 19, though the Sox were already in spring training mode. If the series goes the distance he'd be scheduled to get the ball for Game 5 back here next Thursday.

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

Palestinians work side by side with Israelis in the industrial zone.

The Palestinian militant group Hamas praised the attack, saying it was a "natural response to the crimes of the Israeli occupation", but it did not claim to be behind it.

Palestinians often face tough choices in finding employment in the economically struggling West Bank and jobs in Israeli settlements can provide steady income.

"No way in our industrial zone", he said, describing an atmosphere of camaraderie in Barkan". I don't believe it was one of the Palestinians who just woke up in the morning and took a gun to shoot an Israeli.

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.

Last month, a Palestinian teenager stabbed an Israeli to death at a junction at the entrance to a large bloc of Israeli settlements in the West Bank near Jerusalem.
