There are reportedly over a hundred hunger-striking prisoners at Guantánamo Bay currently, with the month-long fast of Ramadan starting Monday.

Forty of those prisoners are being force fed according to the method seen above.

The procedure that Yasiin Bey's medical staff put him through is based off leaked documents obtained by Al Jazeera in May.
