Red Cross warns Israeli doctors against force-feeding prisoners

June 23, 2014 11:43 P.M. (Updated: June 23, 2014 11:44 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- 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.

Dr. Raid Abu Rabbi, an official of the Red Cross, said that “any doctor who force-feeds prisoners will be violating medical ethics, and in Israel and abroad this doctor could be arrested.”

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.
