According to B'Tselem, "Israeli security forces make extensive use of crowd control means, even when demonstrations have been restricted to a populated area and are not permitted to leave its boundaries."
At times, lethal force is used. Young children are attacked like adults. Arrests follow. So do injuries and deaths. Palestinian lives, welfare and rights don't matter.
"Crowd control weapons are supposed to be non-lethal," says B'Tselem. Endangering human life is prohibited. Israel willfully uses dangerous terror weapons. Severe injuries, deaths, and property damage follow.
Tear gas is Israel's main weapon of choice. It's a chemical irritant. Grenades are used to disperse it. Eyes and respiratory systems are affected.
Several types are labeled "Made in USA." A rubber tear gas grenade (called "400" or "skittering grenade") can be hand thrown or fired from rifle launchers. They also fire 40mm aluminum canisters (called "gas rockets").
Splitting tear gas grenades are used. Some are 40mm-caliber canisters. Several types of launchers fire them. They can be used one at a time or in multiples up to six in quick succession.
Security forces also use jeep-mounted systems. They enable salvos of grenades. They cover large areas.
Stun grenades are diversionary. Their explosions emit bright light and loud noise. Use is designed to cause panic. Doing so lets security forces overpower demonstrators more easily.
Two types of rubber-coated bullets are used. Core metal is either rubber or plastic coated. Launchers mounted on rifles fire them.
