Security forces were placed on heightened alert in Hebron Thursday morning, Army Radio reported, ahead of the funeral of a 17-year-old Palestinian who was killed by Border Police Wednesday after he pulled out a fake gun and threatened an officer near the Cave of the Patriarchs.

Following the incident, dozens of Palestinians reportedly clashed with IDF troops, throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at the soldiers.

According to Army Radio, the deceased teenager, Muhammad al-Salaymeh, is the brother of a Palestinian prisoner released as part of the Gilad Shalit deal.
