A mass demonstration has erupted in the Palestinian city of Tubas following the death of a local Hamas official, Omar Daraghmeh.

The man was arrested by the IDF one week ago and died on Monday in an Israeli prison in unclear circumstances.

Tubas is located in the northern West Bank, between Nablus and Jenin, a region marked by a strong Hamas and Islamic Jihad presence.
