Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem has released a video and a report about IDF soldiers using water cannon trucks to shoot raw sewage into Palestinian neighborhoods where weekly protests, peaceful protests, against the apartheid wall take place.
“Israeli forces have sprayed Palestinian homes in the village of Nabi Saleh with raw sewage as a punishment for organising weekly protests against the Apartheid Wall built on occupied West Bank land. Human rights watchdog B’Tselem published a video showing Israel’s armoured tanker trucks fitted with “water cannons” which spray the foul fluid at Palestinian protesters.
B’Tselem said in a statement that the Israeli forces also targeted all the houses of the village with the sewage. The powerful jet broke windows and caused a great deal of damage in the houses, said the Israeli organisation. “It also causes environmental damage,” it pointed out. The non-lethal weapon has been added to the Israelis’ armoury for crowd control, said B’Tselem, even though the video shows clearly that it is also used against Palestinian-owned property.” Middle East Monitor
This is nothing short of using biological weapons against an occupied population. All kinds of diseases can be caught from this action and the Israelis could easily have seeded some in the sewage because they can simply say it was accidental afterwards.
