Israeli Authorities working in the Israeli prison department force fed a Saudi prisoner in order to stop his hunger strike, a strike which has not been made public, and which prison authorities refuse to admit when it began.

Abd Al Rahman Ayouti, 36, was arrested by the Israeli Authorities for illegally staying in Israel and was taken to Ramlah Jail.

Israeli media sources claim that the Israeli authorities are keeping the man in custody for his own protection, due to a death threat against him in his home country of Saudi Arabia.
