    Default Israeli security forces spray raw sewage at Palestinian homes

    I dont know if repost.
    This is true? And if it is, why Israel does this?

    http://www.middleeastmonitor.com/new...estinian-homes

    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.
    The Israeli military has been looking for an alternative to tear gas canisters for crowd control, claiming that the Palestinians now know how to cope with the gas and its effects.

    "Apartheid wall"? "Occupied West Bank"? "Great deal of damage"?

    Sure thing, article sounds unbiased and credible

    The article I do not care, I want to know if it is true that Israeli forces carried out these practices.
    The images of the video seem real, that is what they are spraying? And why they do this?

    Go figure:

    The use or misuse of information was always central to the conflict in the Middle East. There is an urgent need for supporters of the Palestinian cause in particular to master the art of information gathering, analysis and dissemination. This requires well organized, focused and targeted operations. Such initiatives are virtually non-existent in the West today.

    The Middle East Monitor (MEMO) was established to fill this gap. [...]

    Israel most certainly does not use raw sewage. What you see in the video is most probably "Skunk" crowd control system:

    "Skunk" is a malodorant, non-lethal weapon used for crowd control by the Israeli Defense Forces. Deriving its name from the animal of the same name, "Skunk" is dispersed as a form of mist, fired from a water cannon, which leaves a terrible odor of rot or sewage on whatever it touches. It does not wash off easily and is said to linger on clothes for up to five years.[1] First attempts at developing a scent-based form of crowd control began in Israel in 2004; Skunk was first used for crowd control in September 2008.
    According to David Ben Harosh, head of technological development for the Israeli police, the recipe is based entirely on natural organic ingredients, including yeast and baking powder, does not include any harmful materials, and may even be ingested without causing harm. The inventors plan to market Skunk to other forces worldwide. The development of Skunk followed numerous accusations against Israeli forces that they often employ disproportionate force in clashes with Palestinian protestors (e.g. using rubber bullets or tear gas), which has led them to seek new, non-lethal but effective methods of crowd control.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skunk_%28weapon%29

    Whether or not it's use was justified in this particular case is a valid question. However I find it difficult to judge from this video. The simple fact is that if they lied about "raw sewage", there is no reason to believe they tell the truth about the context.

    About 20 seconds in you see someone throw something at the truck. Of course you're going to get skunk sprayed if you throw rocks at a truck filled with it. Silly people.

    I can understand the use of Skunk against protesters, certainly always is best, stink than being shot, but I do not understand the reason for spraying entire neighborhoods with this product

    Skunk makes much more sense. Wouldnt using sewage as a crowd control measure be considered as a biological weapon?

    It easier that giving them a spring back that settlers illegally took over.

    I'm sure they would've been more accurate if the people just came out from behind the buildings.

    This village has weekly protest over a spring that was taken over by settler 3 years ago which is located on private land owned by leader of this village.
