The IDF uses CS type tear gas for dispersing demonstrators, which research shows may be dangerous, and is known to have caused deaths. According to Dr. Daniel Argo, an Israeli physician participating in the demonstrations against the separation fence, the use of CS gas in large batches, as the soldiers do in demonstrations, is particularly dangerous. Dr. Argo said further that recently sustained injury to the eyes, skin disfigurement and respiratory diseases, all of which can be connected to the use of CS gas by the IDF, were diagnosed. (Hebrew)
