Correction: The tear gas used in Bil’in is manufactured by Combined Tactical Systems, Inc, based in Jamestown, Pennsylvania, not the Defense Technology Corporation of America as reported below. For more information see here.

Regarding Ahmed Moor’s report from Bil’in:

Those rubber teargas grenades (rubber so they bounce along spreading the gas rather than get stuck in one place) are “Made in USA.” I believe that the 40mm teargas shells are also made in USA.

This is one of the tear gas grenades thrown at us by the Israeli Army at a demonstration against the Apartheid Wall outside the West Bank village of Bil’in. It is made by the Defense Technology Corporation of America, headquartered in Casper, Wyoming –
