Israeli police open fire on Jewish civilians, wound 15; UPDATED with new video

The most amazing thing about this story is that it is not even being reported on Israel Radio. Perhaps that isn't so amazing. It's no secret that Israel Radio is totally Leftist and hates the revenants (what some of you call 'settlers').

Israel's border police - who are largely made up of what is so delicately called 'minorities' (Bedouin and Druze) - shot rubber bullets and tear gas at revenants at Gilad's Farm during a raid that took place at 4:00 am on Monday. Gilad's Farm is an outpost that overlooks Route 60, the main North-South road through Samaria. It is just north of Geva Binyamin and Kochav Yaakov.
Setters claimed that Border Police forces shot rubber bullets and tear gas at them during the demolition of three structures at the unauthorized outpost of Gilad Farm in Samaria on Monday.

According to police, eight settlers were arrested during the clashes that broke out when they entered the outpost in a pre-dawn raid. Settlers claimed that 12 people were bruised by rubber bullets.

Police said they responded only after stones were thrown at them and they understood that a number of settlers had knives and instruments which could be used for stabbing.

Settlers have called for an immediate investigation into the incident. Police said they operated according to the rules of engagement, but they did not respond to the specific charges.

MK Michael Ben Ari (National Union), who was at Gilad Farm, claimed that Border Police pushed him to the ground. He added that he retrieved a rubber bullet from the scene.
Here's video of the incident - decide for yourselves.

Let's go to the videotape.

And for those of you who question whether they really used rubber bullets, over at the Muqata, Joe Settler has pictures of people who were wounded that were taken by Jameel (who was there).

UPDATE 12:07 PM

Israel Radio reports on its 12:00 newscast that the police claim they used paint bullets and not rubber bullets.

UPDATE 8:15 PM

Here's a longer version of the same video, now up on YouTube.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Judeamail).

Shy Guy, war criminals.

The leaders who gave the order should be fired.

The officers who shot innocent Jews need to be put on trial and punished.

Its outrageous deadly force is used against Jews in the Jewish State!

Paint guns... just like the IDF employed against the Mavi Marmara.

Never forgive. Never forget.

Regular reader here:
as an avid paintball player, who gets covered in similar welts, every weekend (yes, some of them, do bleed, and please dont ask me why i still do it :), i dont think i could explain), on the basis of the provided video and pictures, with reluctance i have to confirm the Police claim, that they shot paintballs. Rubber paintballs, commonly known as Reballs (Reusable balls) leave much larger marks, and rarely break the skin.
Regular paintballs always break the skin when shot point blank.
A simple Google image search for Paintball welts can show plenty of bleeding, non bleeding, etc. welts.
