Hundreds of Palestinian Authority Arabs are rioting at this hour between Kiryat Arba and Hebron following the death of PA Minister Ziad Abu Ein in clashes with the IDF in Samaria.
Rioters are hurling rocks and firebombs at soldiers and burning tires on the road between the two communities.
No injuries have been reported as of 9 a.m. Thursday.
Video footage of Wednesday’s protest show segments of the standoff between Abu Ein, who led a protest march towards the Jewish community of Adei Ad, and soldiers.
The Palestinian Authority claims soldiers beat Ein, but the only physical contact that can be seen is a soldier shoving him.
The IDF is on high alert for riots throughout Judea and Samaria on Thursday, when Abu Ein is to buried near Ramallah.
