Israel sprays a “Crap Cannon” to control West Bank crowds

The Israeli military implements an unusual “crowd control” (humiliation) technique in the form of a putrid liquid which is sprayed on Palestinian demonstrators. A spokesperson for the Israeli Army says that “It’s water based, it has various ingredients that create a very pungent smell” without elaborating on any specific ingredients. Opponents of the humiliating tactic point out that the cannon is never used on Israeli demonstrators, only Palestinians.
