A Palestinian prisoner died in an Israeli jail on Saturday, sparking violence in the West Bank city of Hebron, his home town, and a call from the Territories' prime minister for a full inquiry.
The Palestinian Prisoners' Club meanwhile said the number of inmates on hunger strike had climbed to 11.
Israel Prisons Service spokeswoman Sivan Weizman said prisoner Arafat Jaradat, a 30-year-old father of two, had died suddenly at Megiddo detention centre in northern Israel.
"It was probably a cardiac arrest. I don't have additional details at the moment," Weizman said.
