Israel Handling Of Hunger Strikers ‘Ethical Failure’: NGO

Israel’s treatment of four hunger-striking Palestinians is an “ethical failure” an Israeli NGO said on Sunday, adding that their rights were being violated.

A statement from Tel Aviv-based Physicians for Human Rights said that the fasting prisoners were denied visits from independent doctors and manacled during hospital checkups.

“Physicians views with extreme gravity the fact that the rights of the hunger strikers are being violated time and again by various authorities, whose representatives act against the law, regulations, international conventions and medical ethics,” it said.

“This is a systemic moral, ethical and professional failure,” it added.
