Israeli security forces are searching for a Palestinian suspected of killing two Israelis and wounding a third in the occupied West Bank on Sunday.

The suspect, a 23-year-old Palestinian, had a permit to work in the industrial zone, army spokesman Jonathan Conricus said, adding that Israel is treating the incident as a terrorist attack.

Israel's national ambulance service said a man and two women were shot in the attack in area, where almost 5,000 Palestinians are employed in Israeli-owned businesses.

The woman, 54, was taken to hospital, where her condition was stabilised.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said troops would soon apprehend the "despicable murderer" and "bring him to justice".

While insisting the attack was an act of terrorism, he acknowledged there were "other factors involved as well", without elaborating.

Security forces launched a manhunt for the shooter, who fled the scene after the attack.

The result is also said to have been the last straw as it relates to the decision on Mourinho's future at the club. I think of Louis Van Gaal being sacked on the evening of an [FA Cup] final and finding out from other people.

He was certain the perpetrator would be caught and brought to justice.

The Barkan industrial zone in the northern West Bank employees thousands of Israelis and Palestinians.

"We applaud this heroic operation and affirm that it comes as a natural response to the Israeli occupation's crimes at the expense of the Palestinian people", the terror group said in a statement, citing "settlers storming the Al-Aqsa Mosque", attempts of the "occupation authorities" to demolish the illegal Khan al-Ahmar outpost and "daily incursions into the West Bank" as justification for the attack.

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.

Mother Hava and relatives and friends mourn during the funeral of Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, aged 28, one of the two Israelis killed earlier in a terrorist attack, on October 7, 2018, in Rosh Haayin.

Soldiers, as well as police and Shin Bet internal security officers "operated in the village of Shuweika, north of Tulkarm, from which the terrorist originated", the military said.

Israel settlements are considered illegal under worldwide law and major stumbling blocks to peace as they are built on land the Palestinians see as part of their future state.
