According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, an Israeli settler shot to death a Palestinian man, Bilal Muhammad Saleh (40), in southern Nablus on Saturday morning.

His death brings the total number of Palestinian casualties in the occupied West Bank since 7 October to 111 killed and 1,950 wounded.

Seven Palestinians, including one minor, were detained after 200 Israeli soldiers raided the Jalazone refugee camp north of Ramallah.

Israeli forces also demolished a two-storey house in the camp using an armored bulldozer.

The Israeli army also stormed the Dheisha refugee camp in the city of Bethlehem and laid siege to towns in Hebron.

At the same time, settlers in the north West Bank town of Saflit distributed leaflets threatening to kill any Palestinians who did not "escape" to Jordan.

“You wanted a catastrophe similar to 1948, and by God, a great catastrophe will descend upon your heads soon,” the leaflet read.

"You have one last chance to escape to Jordan in an organized manner. After that, we will destroy every [one of you] and forcefully expel you from the holy land that God has written for us," it added.
