  • ISRAEL OUT A wounded man is wheeled into a hospital in Jerusalem following a shooting attack on a religious school in the city in which at least eight students were killed

The IDF said Sunday that Na'alwa was known to security forces but had no past terror offenses and no formal ties to terrorist groups, saying it appeared to have been a "lone-wolf attack".

Conricus said the attacker was employed in one of the factories and had a valid working permit.

A manager at another company in the industrial zone, Moshe Lev-Ran, suggested the attack might not have been politically motivated.

The source said PA security officials believe Na'alwa would be more willing to surrender to Palestinian forces thinking they would be less eager to turn him over to Israel or out of fear that he would be killed during Israeli attempts to apprehend him. As of now we know nothing about the circumstances.

The suspect worked in the factory where the attack took place and has been identified by the security services, though he has not yet been publicly named.

Speaking at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was certain the perpetrator would be caught and brought to justice.

Man Utd defeat Newcastle 3-2 in Premier League
Team news: What do Jose Mourinho and Rafa Benitez have to say? "Today, you have to give credit to Man United ". In his pre-match press conference on Friday, Mourinho accepted that the performance was not good enough.

Conricus called it a terrorist attack but said other unspecified factors were involved. Then Na'alowa fled the scene.

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

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group called the attack a "natural response" to Israeli crimes in Gaza, Jerusalem and Khan al-Ahmar, a Bedouin village in the West Bank slated for demolition. He then targeted his third and final victim, Ziv Hajbi, 35, whom he shot and killed.

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

Note that the caption of the accompanying photograph from the scene states that "three Israelis were shot by a Palestinian co-worker".

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