Around 6,500 Palestinian and Arab prisoners in Israeli prisons, jails and detention camps have been going on a hunger strike for 33 days in a raw, in protest to the tight measures taken against them. Some have managed to pressure Israel into releasing them, although some have been re-detained.

The AP, citing video footage, witnesses, and medical officals, reported that a man, whom Israeli media identified as a settler, fatally shot a protester and shot their photographer in the hand after dozens of protesters blocked the road near the Hawara checkpoint.

The incident unfolded as hundreds of Palestinians rallied in support of the hunger-striking security prisoners in Israel.
