A video has circulated on social media of Israeli settlers attacking Palestinians as they harvested olives in the village of Deir al-Hatab, Nablus, in the occupied West Bank.

Three Palestinians were reportedly injured, including an elderly woman.

The video of the attack shows the settlers attacking the Palestinians, as an Israeli soldier stands nearby.

Human rights groups have previously condemned Israeli authorities for failing to protect Palestinians from settler violence, with the majority of settler attacks against Palestinians carried out with impunity.
