An Israeli settler was filmed shooting a Palestinian at point-blank range in the southern West Bank near Hebron.

In the footage, circulated by the B'Tselem organization, the settler approached the Palestinian, pushed him, and then shot him in the abdomen. At this stage, the Palestinian's condition is unclear.

The incident took place near the Palestinian village of At-Tuwani, which lies south of Hebron. An IDF soldier is also visible in the footage standing in the background near the settler.

The settler was dressed in civilian clothing and was armed with an assault rifle, which is often distributed to settlers and civilian guard groups authorized by the army.

On Wednesday, Israeli settlers shot and killed three Palestinians after entering the Palestinian village of Qusra in the West Bank, the Palestinian Health Ministry reported.

According to an Israeli security source, the Israeli army heard gunfire and saw masked men leaving the village with an ATV.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said that eight others were wounded and taken to hospitals in Salafit and Nablus, adding that three of them are in critical condition, with gunshot wounds to the neck and abdomen.

The head of the Qusra village council said that settlers attacked houses where families with children were staying.

Earlier on Wednesday, it was reported that two Palestinians were killed in clashes with settlers and police in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan.

On Friday, a 19-year-old Palestinian was shot dead in the West Bank city of Hawara during clashes between Israelis who arrived to the area and the city's residents. The IDF said that he was shot on the spot after throwing a heavy stone at an Israeli vehicle, and the Palestinian Health Ministry claims that a settler shot him.
