Ubeid collapsed after seeing his house destroyed and was taken to hospital for treatment.
Youths in the village gathered in the area and hurled stones at Israeli soldiers, who fired tear gas canisters and sound grenades.
A local woman, Aisha Daoud, suffered serious breathing difficulties as a result of the tear gas.
