Three Israelis have been shot and killed, and a fourth wounded, in a settlement in the occupied West Bank, Israeli army radio reported.

The station interviewed a resident of Har Adar, an illegal settlement near Jerusalem, who said the gunman had arrived with a group of Palestinian laborers and opened fire on paramilitary Israeli police guards.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in public remarks to his cabinet that the gunman’s home would be demolished and any work permits issued to his relatives would be revoked.
