Three Palestinians killed by Israeli gunman

An Israeli gunman killed three Palestinians in the West Bank on Wednesday, Israeli medical officials said, in an attack that could complicate Israel's evacuation of Jewish settlers in the Gaza Strip.

A police spokesman said the attacker, identified in the Israeli media as a Jewish settler from the West Bank, was arrested.

Medical officials said three Palestinians were killed and at least three others were wounded in the shooting near the Jewish settlement of Shiloh.

"It appears that an Israeli who resides locally grabbed a gun from a security man at the Shiloh industrial zone and opened fire on Palestinians, who may have been workers or passers-by," an Israeli security source said, reports Reuters.
