Left-wing activists: IDF uses live ammo to break up West Bank protests
Advertisements [?]
Palestinians and Israeli left-wing activists claim that in the wake of Operation Cast Lead, the Israel Defense Forces has reintroduced the use of a semiautomatic rifle that uses live ammunition to disperse crowds that was banned after the second Intifada.

The Ruger .22 rifle was banned following the Al-Aqsa Intifada, in which it was used to break up protests and caused the deaths of a number of Palestinians, including youths and children.

I noticed this article was posted previously but was locked due to violations of the forum rules. I thought it was important enough to warrant being reposted.
