Thousands of mourners on Monday attended the funeral of Arafat Jaradat who died two days earlier in Israeli custody.

Jaradat, 30, died in Israel's Megiddo prison a week after he was detained. An autopsy showed he died from severe torture, Palestinian officials said Sunday.

Large numbers of Israeli forces deployed around Sair and imposed extensive restrictions on the entrances to Hebron and nearby villages.
