Israel uses deadly weapons on unarmed Palestinian protesters - watchdog


­In the 31-page report, B’Tselem accused Israeli security forces of having "extensively and systematically violated" rules that ban deadly response to a non-lethal assault. B’Tselem has been working on the report, ‘Crowd Control: Israel’s use of Crowd Control Weapons in the West Bank’ for the past year.

Only in the past fortnight, the Israeli military shot dead two Palestinians in the clashes.

Since 2005, six people were killed by rubber-coated metal bullets and two by teargas canisters, both supposedly non-lethal weapons which were fired directly at protesters, according to B'Tselem.
