Police investigators on Sunday said that security forces acted properly and according to regulation in dealing with settlers during the demolition of three structures at the Gilad Farm outpost last week. The report on the incident was presented to Police Inspector-General David Cohen.

Settlers had claimed that Police used excessive force during the incident at Gilad Farm and particularly took offense at the use of plastic bullets.

The report explains that a weapon called the FN303, which is defined as a “less-lethal automatic launcher,” was used by security forces. "The FN303 was used at two points at which stones and glass bottles were thrown at forces while they attempted to make arrests. From the investigation of the officers who used the weapon, it was determined that they were properly trained and skilled and flawlessly carried out their work."
