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

Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus described the Palestinian as a 23-year-old resident of the city of Qalqilya in northwestern West Bank, who worked at the factory, saying he was still at large.

The Palestinian used a homemade gun in the attack, known locally as a Carlo, according to Conricus. The prime minister said he was certain the perpetrator would be caught and brought to justice.

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

The army, however, said the alleged shooter was still employed at the site as of Sunday, but noted he had been away from work in recent days.

The military launched an investigation of the attack to determine, among other things, how the gun was smuggled into the industrial park and whether the terrorist meant to take Levengrond Yehezkel hostage, having used zip-ties to bind her hands. Israeli forces killed over 260 Palestinians in that period, of which Israel says most were attackers.

The Palestinian Islamic Jihad 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. Hajbi, a father of three, was buried in the southern community of Nir Yisrael.

Israel's President Reuven Rivlin and U.S. ambassador David Friedman both condemned the shooting in the Barkan industrial zone, where thousands of Palestinians and an equal numbers of Jewish Israelis have worked side-by-side for decades, as an attack on coexistence.

Officials reportedly believe that Na'alowa, who is said to have left a suicide note before the attack, is preparing to engage troops who close in on him in a firefight that could turn deadly.

Speaking at Barkan, Yossi Dagan, head of a regional council for Israeli settlements in the area, said there were "Jewish and Palestinian workers standing outside together and crying".

The army has launched an investigation into how Na'alwa was able to smuggle his weapon into the gated industrial park and into whether he had bound Levengrond Yehezkel with the intention of taking her hostage.
