Palestinian kills two Israeli guards


A Palestinian terrorist killed two Israeli security guards at an industrial zone on the West Bank-Israel boundary.

Two Israelis in their 50s who were checking Palestinian laborers as they entered the Netzanei Oz industrial zone early Friday were shot dead by an assailant who then fled the scene.

Israeli authorities mounted a manhunt, saying the gunman likely escaped to the nearby Palestinian Authority town of Tulkarm.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad claimed joint responsibility for the attack.
