  1. Israelis should consider the Chinese Hawk XY10 for such operations :

    “The XY10 automatic shotgun is produced by Chinese company Hawk Industries specifically for law enforcement use. It is designed to fire proprietary 10mm brass shotshells (with overall length about 50mm / 2”) that can be loaded with less-lethal “bean bag” impact projectiles, CS tear gas projectiles, or large size buckshot (3 lead balls of about 10mm each per rounds). What makes this gun to stand out from the crowd of other law enforcement shotguns is that it is capable of full automatic fire with rate of about 5 shots per second. With less-lethal ammunition its maximum effective range is claimed to be about 15 meters, with lead buckshot its maximum effective range is about 50 meters.”-Maxim Popenker

    The type of rubber bullets IDF uses is much riskier than ‘bean bags’ as the rubber bullets are actually metal ones with rubber coating to be used in a M-16/M-4 assault riffle. If you’re too close, which is common in riot control, these rubber coated bullets have too much energy and act like classic bullets, entering tissues.
    The XY10 might be much more fun to use : I don’t see how these could penetrate, you can shoot bursts and if necessary, you can use it with lethal pellets if things are getting dangerous.
    Nevertheless, these kids are used as useful idiots for a cause that is a total fraud : having “back” territories that never belonged to Arabs.
