Dozens of Palestinians hurled stones Sunday at IDF soldiers in Kfar Sa'ir, a West Bank village near Hebron which was the home of Arafat Jaradat, the Palestinian prisoner that died in Megiddo Prison on Saturday.

The IDF employed riot dispersal methods in attempts to contain the rioters.

The IDF was on high alert in the West Bank and east Jerusalem after Jaradat died of an apparent heart attack in prison. Palestinian prisoners launched a one-day hunger strike to protest his death which they blame on Israel.
