Red Cross Warns Israeli Doctors against Force-Feeding Palestinian Detainees

Occupied Jerusalen, June 24 (QNA) -The International Committee of the Red Cross on Monday warned doctors in Israel against force-feeding hunger-striking prisoners, saying they could face international prosecution.

“Any doctor who force-feeds prisoners will be violating medical ethics, and in Israel and abroad this doctor could be arrested,” (Ma’an) news agency quoted Dr. Raid Abu Rabbi, an official of the Red Cross, as saying.

A law to allow force-feeding prisoners was set to be approved on Monday. However, the Israeli minister of finance threatened to call off the bill and voting was postponed until the coming week. (QNA)
