Those killed were identified as a man and woman, both in their 30s and employees at the same factory.

The other woman shot in the incident was taken to hospital, where doctors said her injuries were not life-threatening.

Israeli security forces raided the village of a Palestinian suspected of shooting two Israelis dead, the army said Monday, making arrests while the assailant himself remained at large.

"This was a serious terrorist attack", the military said in a statement.

Conricus said the suspect was not known to authorities and was not believed to belong to a Palestinian militant group, saying it appeared to be a "lone wolf" attack.
