On Tuesday, the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Michael Lynk, stated that force-feeding amounted to torture, adding that administrative detention, or imprisonment without trial, was against global law. In a written statement, Michael Lynk, the United Nations special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territory under occupation, requested better and accessible health care, unrestrained family visits, and an end to solitary confinement and administrative detention for Palestinian hunger strikers.

The death of the Palestinian led to clashes between dozens of local youth and Israeli soldiers, who also closed Huwwara road. The Israeli settler who shot and wounded a Palestinian man who threw rocks at his auto was detained, but was released after proving it was in self-defense.
