Tear gas grenade fired at Palestinian home in Silwan last friday

Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — An Israeli military patrol is reported to have just fired two tear gas grenades, unprovoked at a group of young boys in Bir Ayyub, Silwan. Eyewitnesses report that tear gas fired by Israeli forces today is of the same make used during clashes on Friday, 4 March – larger in size and hot enough to set alight whatever it lands on. There have been several recent cases of Palestinian homes in Silwan set ablaze by tear gas grenades. Those present also report that this new model leaves visible marks on the faces of those it effects, with many experiencing reddened, irritated skin and eyes.
