A Palestinian teenage boy from a refugee camp was seriously injured during confrontations with security forces near Bethlehem, Israel Radio reported. The boy was evacuated to a near-by hospital.

The IDF said that soldiers used crowd dispersal means and did not use live fire.

Earlier Monday two other Palestinian protesters were lightly injured in the protests.

The protest began following the death of the Palestinian prisoner, Arafat Jadarat, in an Israeli prisoner. Israeli officials claimed that he died of a heart attack, while Palestinians, including his family, insisted that he was tortured to death in the prison.
