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.

Meanwhile, Palestinian group Fatah said Israel's denial of Palestinian rights was the cause of such attacks.

Surveillance footage spread online that appeared to show the Palestinian fleeing the site with a gun.

IDF spokesman Brig Gen Ronen Manelis said the Shin Bet internal security service had concluded that the attack was an act of terrorism, but added that the gunman might have had "additional motives" that were not nationalistic.

Advocates of Israeli settlement policies say the industrial zones are an example of the benefits Palestinians have under Israeli control, including much-needed employment to Palestinians.

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