Deadly experiments: Israel’s murderous testing ground for ‘less-lethal’ weapons
5 January 2011
On New Year’s Eve 2010, whilst much of the world was celebrating, over 1,000 people demonstrated in the Palestinian village of Bil’in against Israel’s encroachment on the village’s land. Israeli tear gas and rubber bullets rained down on the protesters and Jawaher Abu Rahma, who had joined the march to the apartheid wall and retreated to the sidelines after the first volleys of gas, choked to death as the allegedly non-lethal gas enveloped the village.
A report from Bil’in residents said that Israeli soldiers fired tear gas “from the moment protesters entered their sight.” “It is obvious that, for the army, the mere presence of unarmed demonstrators is reason enough to use chemical weapons against them,” it added.
