IDF on High Alert for Prisoner’s Funeral

The IDF and security forces are on high alert Monday in advance of the funeral of Arafat Jaradat, a terrorist prisoner who died in Israel last week. The cause of Jaradat’s death remains unclear, but the Palestinian Authority has declared that Israel tortured him to death.

There is concern that the PA’s accusations will incite violent riots in Judea and Samaria during the day.
