A group of Israeli doctors called Sunday on colleagues both in Israel and internationally to reject plans to force-feed Palestinian prisoners on a mass hunger strike.

Axar.az reports citing to Anadolu Agency Physicians for Human Rights-Israel (PHR-I) said Israeli plans to force-feed hunger strikers “violate medical ethics and threaten to undermine the medical community in Israel”, in a letter to the World Medical Association.

The letter, signed by several senior Israeli doctors, criticized alleged Israeli Prison Service plans to compel doctors to force-feed prisoners and to potentially “import” foreign doctors to replace Israeli medics refusing to cooperate.

It said the plans would violate medical ethics related to coercion of protesting detainees.

Around 1,500 Palestinian prisoners are on the 21st day of a mass hunger strike for better conditions in Israeli prisons, led by senior Palestinian leader Marwan Barghouti.
