Israel's security forces faced rioting throughout Judea and Samaria on Purim. No one was reported hurt.

The security forces are bracing for more violence, as preparations are being made for the funeral of a terrorist who died while in Israeli custody. Israel says he died of heart failure, but Arab inciters claim he died as a result of being beaten.

There are conflicting estimates regarding the likelihood that the rioting will break out into a fully fledged uprising.
