IDF and Police On High Alert

The IDF and the Israeli Police are on high alert and have deployed large forces throughout Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem, fearing of a wave of violent Arab protests following the death on Saturday of detainee Arafat Jaradat at the Meggido Prison.

On Saturday, after news of the prisoner’s death, clashes broke out in Hevron between PA Arab youths and Israeli security forces. 3,000 terrorists being held in Israeli prisons have announced that they would be refusing food on Sunday, in protest of Jaradat’s death.
