The General Israeli Radio has announced that Doctors for Human Rights in Israel has filed a suit before the Central Court of Ber Alsaba demanding that it order the Israeli Prison Service to remove chains tied to Palestinian hunger striker Bilal Kayed, who has been on hunger strike for 39 days.

Kayed went on a hunger strike demanding his freedom after he was placed under an administrative detention order on the day he was supposed to be released after serving 14.5 years in Israeli jails.

Doctors for Human Rights have stated that tying a person to his bed negates the principles of human rights as well as the law of dealing with a sick person, and even the regulations of the Israeli Prison Service itself.
