Surveillance video from the factory after the attack showed the gunman fleeing down a flight of stairs and then running past shocked onlookers.

Israel's Magen David Adom emergency medical services said their medics had entered a building at Barkan and found a man and woman dead.

"We grieve today as we part from Kim Yehezkel and Ziv Hajbi, may their memories be blessed", Netanyahu said at the dedication of a synagogue in the Golan Heights.
