OCCUPIED JERUSALEM — Israeli occupation forces shot and killed a Jewish settler in central occupied Jerusalem overnight Wednesday after mistaking him for a "Palestinian attacker," Israeli police and media said.

Israeli media said the man was shot after he attempted to grab a weapon from Israeli security forces after an argument. The man was identified as a Jewish-Israeli from his identity card.

Other reports said a private security guard shot the man after an altercation as he was getting off a bus in the centre of occupied Jerusalem.

Israeli forces have killed at least 47 Palestinians since the start of the month, many of whom rights groups claim were killed through "extra-judicial execution" by Israeli forces, who have been urged by officials to shoot and kill alleged attackers on scene.
