Heightened tensions in West Bank over death of Israeli prisoner

Masked Palestinian gunmen fired in the air and youths clashed with police in Se'eer during large protests at the funeral of a prisoner who died while confined by Israelis. Meanwhile, 5 Palestinians were shot, one in critical condition, during confrontations in Bethlehem. The end result is mounting tensions over another possible Palestinian uprising. Travellers should always exercise caution and avoid all public and political demonstrations since they may become violent without warning.
