JERUSALEM - Israel's homeland security minister voiced concern on Monday that a surge of violent Palestinian protests in the West Bank could erupt into a new Intifada (uprising) if confrontations turned deadly.

A Palestinian's death in an Israeli jail on Saturday and a hunger strike by four other prisoners have raised tension in the West Bank, where stone-throwers have clashed repeatedly with Israeli soldiers in recent days.

Minister Avi Dichter told Israel Radio that Jerusalem had to tread carefully in dealing with any protests, accusing the Palestinians of trying to portray themselves as victims before US President Barack Obama's visit to the region next month.

"They (the Palestinians) are trying to drag us to a situation where there will be dead children," Dichter said.
