A Palestinian gunman on Tuesday killed three Israeli security men and critically wounded a fourth outside an occupied West Bank settlement before being shot dead. Israeli officials said the attacker was a 37-year-old father of four, with a valid work permit in Israel and who appeared to have acted alone, AP reported. Security forces’ spokeswoman Luba Samri said the attacker approached the back gate entrance of the Har Adar settlement, hiding among dozens of Palestinian day laborers who were being checked by security forces. When a guard asked him to stop, he opened fire at close range before being shot dead by security forces, Samri said. Israel’s hardline prime minister, Benjamim Netanyahu, pledged that as a punitive measure, the attacker’s home would be demolished and working permits of his extended family would be revoked.
