Israel Used ‘Banned Arms’ in Crackdown

Locals in an Israeli-occupied neighborhood find traces of banned weaponry, used by Israeli forces in their crackdown on a recent wave of protests.

The Silwan neighborhood of East al-Quds (Jerusalem) has been swept with outrage at a curfew imposed following the troops’ killing of two Palestinians on September 22, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported. The order prevented movement between al-Quds’ neighborhoods.

The area of the clashes was scattered after the suppression with expired and oxidized tear gas canisters.

Medical staff said those injured in the incidents displayed signs of poisoning. Residents, meanwhile, reported an increase in the symptoms of fatigue, high fever, vomiting and shortness of breath.

A 14-month-old infant has also died due to its inhalation of tear gas fired by Israeli forces, confronting the protests in East al-Quds that followed the recent killings.

A preliminary probe has been launched into the use of the weapons, while further investigation is planned.
