0 Israeli Army Use New "Sound Weapons" to Disperse Protesters

The Israeli army Wednesday used an acoustic weapon called 'The Scream' for the first time to disperse Palestinians demonstrating at Qalandia checkpoint, north of Jerusalem, in support of the Palestinian bid to the United Nations.

Within seconds, the sound emitted by the weapon causes people to fall to their knees, unable to maintain their balance. The weapon also causes dizziness and nausea, and long exposure to the sound can cause damage to hearing. It can be heard even if sound-proof earplugs are used.
Dozens were injured with peculiar medical condition causing the Palestinian protesters to immediately disperse after the Israeli army fired the weapons.
Soldiers also used a new kind of tear gas bombs which caused people to faint giving them no time to move away, which made it hard for reporters to be at the scene. 
Shortly before noon, Israeli soldiers shot an unnamed 15-year-old in the eye with a rubber-coated steel bullet from a distance of 25 meters. 
He was taken to a Ramallah hospital, where it was confirmed he lost his eye. The boy, as well as many others at the demonstration, was throwing rocks and bottles at the soldiers, who in violation of their own open-fire regulations shot from close range.

Four other Palestinians were shot and an international solidarity activist was shot in his ear. Three Palestinians--one from Jenin, one from Nablus, and one from Ramallah--were arrested by plainclothes Israeli troops. Palestinians burned tires to obscure Israeli soldiers' lines of sight as the battle went on into the evening.

And the Faux News coverage....
just for that, should I say "different angle"...
