Barkan terror victims

Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel, 28, from Rosh Ha'ayin, is the Israeli who was murdered in the terror attack this morning in the Barkan industrial zone.

An initial investigation revealed that a PA man who worked in the factory tied her hands and those of another man, and shot them at close range. They were critically wounded and later confirmed dead. Security forces are pursuing the terrorist who managed to escape from the scene.

Levengrond-Yehezkel began working at the factory a year ago, as a receptionist for the deputy CEO of the company. She leaves behind her husband, Guy, and her one-and-a-half year-old baby, Kai.

The name of the man who was murdered in the attack at the Barkan recycling plant was later revealed as Ziv Hajbi, 35, of Rishon Letzion.

A 58-year-old woman who was moderately wounded is hospitalized at Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva.
