Report: Palestinian protesters use snake against Israeli forces

May 30, 2015 12:40 P.M. (Updated: June 1, 2015 10:15 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian protesters in the Silwad town north of Ramallah allegedly used a snake to fight Israeli forces firing tear-gas bombs and rubber-coated steel bullets during clashes in the area on Friday, Israeli media reported.

Israeli news website Ynet reported on what it identified as "the new Palestinian weapon": a large snake tied with a rope to an Israeli military concrete barricade.

Israeli forces reportedly found the snake on their way to a barricade set up earlier for their protection.

Apparently, both the Palestinians and the soldiers thought that the snake was poisonous but after tests conducted by Israeli authorities, the snake was identified as hemorrhois nummifer, a non-venomous species of which there are around 27 varieties in Palestine.
