Doctors at Asaf Harofe Medical Center announced on Monday that Lod resident Yigal Yehoshua, 56, had died of wounds which he had sustained during riots in the city a week ago, after being hit in the head with a brick.

Earlier on Monday, a resident of Jaffa was arrested on Sunday night under suspicion of being the culprit that severely injured a 12-year-old Arab boy after throwing a Molotov cocktail into his house in the city in a joint operation of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and Israel Police.

The suspect, a man in his 20s, was transferred to the Shin Bet and is undergoing questioning.
A Tel Aviv District Court judge ordered a gag order on all details of the investigation and the suspects’ identities.
The 12-year-old was still in serious condition on Sunday after he and another child in Jaffa were burnt from the Molotov cocktail while at home in the Ajami neighborhood of Jaffa Friday night.
Seven people suspected of being involved in violent riots in Lod were arrested during the night between Sunday and Monday as additional Border Police units were dispatched to the city and are carrying out operational activity.
