Knesset legal counselor: Doctors can drug, force-feed prisoners

June 19, 2014 7:48 P.M. (Updated: June 19, 2014 7:49 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The legal counselor for Israel's internal security ministry, Yoel Idar, said Wednesday that Israeli doctors can “drug” administrative hunger-striking prisoners and force-feed them.

A Knesset member told Ma'an that the legal counselor suggested, during a session for the committee in the Knesset, the possibility of drugging the hunger-strikers so doctors could force-feed them.

The MK, Ahmad Tibi, said the meeting discussed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s law of force-feeding the prisoners on hunger strike.

Tibi responded to the legal counselor by saying that “force-feeding is dangerous and threatens the lives of the hunger-strikers and it offends their dignity.”

He pointed out that there will be a vote on the force-feeding decision next Monday.
