The occupation procedure came as a collective punishment against the villagers, for the protests that they have been organizing every week against the apartheid wall and the confiscation of the village’s lands for settlement projects.

The Israeli human rights group said in a press release on Wednesday that it has documented a video showing the occupation soldiers targeting houses in Nabi Saleh village, near Ramallah in the West Bank, with special cannon that sprays smelly water.

The attack caused material losses to the Palestinian houses, in addition to the environmental and psychological damage.

The video also shows an Israeli military vehicle spraying the wastewater on a room of a citizen house from close range.

B’Tselem said that the Israeli forces have developed cannon that sprays wastewater, as an effective means used to disperse demonstrations and have claimed that they will not use it against civilians who do not participate in the protests. However, the video proves the falsehood of their claims.

More about Israel’s “Skunk”

The Skunk is a foul-smelling liquid developed by the Israel Police for dispersing demonstrations. B’Tselem doesn’t know its chemical makeup or the safety instructions regulating its use. According to the IDF spokesperson, the Skunk contains organic material and has been approved for use by the Israeli Ministry of the Environment and the Chief IDF Medical Officer.

The Skunk is sprayed from specially designed trucks to a maximum range of 30-40 meters. Israel Police procedure stipulates that the Skunk must be used with care and that innocent bystanders must not be harmed.

Exposure to the Skunk in the quantities ordinarily used at demonstrations does not pose health hazards, but can cause nausea and vomiting. Security forces often spray the liquid at homes and yards, making it very difficult to get rid of the persistent smell. These actions raise suspicions that the Skunk is being used punitively against villages where regular weekly demonstrations are held. (Source and more at B’Tselem)
