A Palestinian youth 'returns' a tear gas canister fired by Israeli security forces during Friday clashes in Bethlehem.
The Israeli security forces fire utilise an arsenal of 'less lethal' or crowd control devices during clashes and protests in the West Bank. Full sized live 'lethal' rounds such as 'dum-dum' bullets are also used but not as extensively as those listed below.
sponge tipped bullets
.22 cal live ammunition
'skunk' water cannons
A noxious and potentially toxin concoction that smells like liquid death when sprayed at protestors. It takes weeks to get the smell out of ones skin and is almost impossible to remove from clothing. Residents near sites where the 'water' has been spray report significant nausea and health issues in direct correlation to the use of the 'water'.
