West Bank: New weapons used against demonstrators

with 3 comments

International Solidarity Movement

The green bullet contains an unknown chemical substance.Since the start of the massacre on Gaza (27 December 2009), the Israeli army has been testing new types of weapons in several villages around West Bank. There are two new types of bullets and one new type of teargas canister.

One small bullet, known by its caliber size as “0.22″, does not make a sound when fired. The bullet can only be heard by a low sweeping noise in the air as it passes. The low caliber allows the bullet to easily enter the body and cause internal bleeding. The bullet can enter a body from approximately 50 meters. Until now, 7 people have been shot with the “0.22″ in Bi’lin, Ni’lin, and Budrus. Several from Bi’lin and Ni’lin have this bullet lodged in their knees, one bullet went through a demonstrator’s leg and another demonstrator was shot in the stomach (causing internal bleeding).

Too small to be considered live ammunition by Israeli authorities, the 0.22 caliber bullet is just as deadly

  1. it’s a paint ball with a little “PEPPER” or tear gas in it. the paint makes it easy to pick out wjho was involved and the teargas makes them leave, this is not a weapon. and it is used by police departments worldwide. and it is safer then a trazer .

    totally non leathel…….

  2. Don’t think it is a paint ball. And the demos seem legitimate and non violent, often involving jews.
