Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Israeli undercover units are employing a new, unknown electrical device in crowd-control missions in East Jerusalem, say witnesses. Residents of Anata refugee camp stated that undercover police were witnessed brandishing a formerly unseen small electrical device at protesters during clashes in recent days that, when applied, temporarily cripple the movement of those targeted.

The stunning device was not seen applied directly to the skin of targeted protesters, needing only to be activated from several metres away and generally pointed at the feet. The device was used as a means of crippling protesters to allow police to move in and arrest them with ease.

The unknown device was used frequently throughout clashes that erupted on the Nakba anniversary day.
