Against Israeli advice, the US Army straps hunger strikers into this chair for “assisted eating.”

Hunger Strike, Guantánamo Bay

Once a day, each fasting Guantánamo Bay detainee is shackled into a chair and held down by six soldiers, while a feeding tube is inserted into a nostril and down his digestive tract. The whole process takes two hours. Force-feeding has been carried out at the US naval base in Cuba since February 2013, when over 100 detainees went on hunger strike after prison staff mishandled copies of the Koran.
