    Bravo. Finally Israel has removed a NLW from its arsenal. It does not kill like rubber bullets or high velocity tear gas canisters can. In other scenarios, the young protesters end up dead or maimed. It is unethical to have an ethical device (such as this one) and refuse to ever use it. Protester death is unnecessary, Israel has the means to peacefully dispel protesters (as can be seen from this article - no deaths or casualties), but usually chooses to use the lethal means for problem resolution. Israel and the IDF know that protester deaths or injuries this week could cause a response which could escalate into large scale conflict, thus their choice to suddenly (and very atypically) use a Non-lethal response in this situation...
