Medical staff members have been instructed not to leave a hospital where an Israeli-American doctor was wounded on Monday.
On Monday afternoon, Dr. Omer Farivar, who was working in the operating room of the Arakovac Hospital in the central Israeli city of Ashkelon, was shot by a masked man, who fired a gunshot into the air before the doctor ran to help him.
Eyewitnesses said the gunman opened fire at Farivars vehicle, which was parked on the main road near the hospital’s parking lot.
Farivards vehicle was later found covered in blood and bullet holes, and he died at the scene.
Farivismar had recently been transferred from the hospital to a nearby Israeli hospital.
A day earlier, a Palestinian woman was shot dead by an Israeli settler who was standing on a hilltop near the Israeli settlement of Migdal, according to a report from the Israeli news site Ynet.
The woman, named as Mariam Abu Khudair, was stabbed multiple times in the back by an unknown assailant as she approached the settlers’ home, according the Israeli daily Haaretz.
On Saturday, a video surfaced on social media purporting to show Israeli soldiers shooting and killing an unarmed Palestinian man who was attempting to flee the Israeli military outpost of the same name in the West Bank.
In response, the Israeli government ordered an immediate investigation into the incident, which has been widely condemned as a deliberate attack on civilians.
The Israeli military has denied the allegations.
