The committee denied Israeli reports regarding negotiations between the leadership of the strike and the Israel Prison Service.

The committee urged Palestinians to gather at one of the many sit-in tents established in support of the strike at 11:00 to prepare for political rallies organised for later in the day.

In video footage published to YouTube, Mohammed can be seen injured, wearing a protective vest and helmet, not far from the slain protester, whom the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency subsequently identified as Muataz Hussein Hilal, 23.
