Khursa (Arabic: كرزه) is a Palestinian village located seven kilometers south-west of Hebron. The village is in the Hebron Governorate Southern West Bank. According to the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics, the village had a population of 3,440 in 2007. The primary health care facilities for the village are designated by the Ministry of Health as level 2.
In 1883, the Palestine Exploration Fund's Survey of Western Palestine found here "walls, caves, a well, and a vault, probably a cistern. There were several cisterns and a sacred place to the west. Some of the ruins appear to be modern, some ancient."
