Activists of the Palestinian group, 'The Youth Challenge', performed a mock force-feeding in Gaza City as part of a solidarity rally for the Palestinian detainee Mohammed Allan on Tuesday. Dressed up as Israeli doctors and soldiers, demonstrators tied their pretend detainee to a bed and ‘force-fed’ him. The event was organized to protest against an Israeli law that allows force-feeding of prisoners on hunger-strike, with many critics comparing the legislation to torture. Mohammed has been on hunger strike for over two months and slipped into a coma last Friday. The case has sparked many protests across Israel and the West Bank.
