IDF Using Water Cannons to Blow Raw Sewage into Homes of Protesters

by Scott Creighton

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.

  1. The Israelis are nasty filthy people…if they are human, they don’t act like it.

    • I don’t really have a horse in that race (so to speak) but is that not a huge and unfair generalization?

      Would it be fair if all uf us got judged based on the actions of US government and military and their contractors?

      • “Would it be fair if all uf us got judged based on the actions of US government and military and their contractors?”

        if we do nothing to stop them? what do you think? ever read Hitler’s Willing Executioners?

      • All that land and homes that were taken from Palatines… are filled with willing Israelis settlers…. all that occupied land surrounds the sewage sprayed area… even the side of Libya is occupied by Israel….
        and all those Israelis could not halt their fellow citizens ?
        BTW, any disease spread by that sewage will quickly flow (air born) to the occupying settlers.

      • I see your point, but, why aren’t we doing anything then? Every time anyone tries, they get threatened, coerced, or killed, and in the near future, simply arrested.

        We are now directly responsible of deaths of millions, and the misery of even more just in the past 12 years. So, I am not really agreeing with your hypothetical question of “If we do nothing to stop them”… Because “they” have already done it… Over and over again… And we did NOT stop them… Do you think our excuses or reasons for not doing so, or not being able to do so are any different than the average Israeli’s?

        If the argument is that the average Israeli is in favor of most actions that their governments and military take, how come we can’t accept that they are in the grip of the same globalist, imperialist powers and their psyops and propaganda?

        (I know that somebody is going to comment and say how awful what they are doing is… And, I totally agree that it is… Absolutely horrendous!!! No argument there… But judgement on other peoples is a one sided and relative argument, and always and always reflects on the person(s) passing that judgement… Calling someone fat could be simply an observation… But if we are making fun of, or criticizing their fatness and calling them names, we’d better not be fat ourselves)

        • I can’t reach the people in the nations we are bombing and brutalizing..
          I can’t walk across an alley and help them..
          The settlers can literally walk to help.

          • Jan… I do see how you might feel like that.. I really do… But it is, as usual, not so black and white… The people you are calling “the settlers” are not the average ma and pa families… These are the hardest of the hard core, fundamentalist, racist jews… They are almost handpicked out of the nutcases who see this as a fight of biblical proportions, both figuratively and literally… And those people will certainly not walk across the alley to help anyone…

  2. Disgraceful that this is allowed to continue.
