What is CS tear gas?
Management of the effects of exposure to tear gas
In recent decades:
CS has been used by the government in South Africa; by Israel against Palestinians and Israelis; by the South Korean government in Seoul, and during the Balkan conflicts by Serbia. In Malta it was used by Police between 1981 and 1987 to the detriment of Nationalist Party Supporters.
Israel Police forces spray CS gas at riot control situations. It is widely used at demonstrations within the Palestinian Territories and at the Israeli West Bank barrier as non lethal weapon. CS gas has been proposed, although unverified, as the cause of death of Jawaher Abu Rahmah in December 31, 2010.
