Local residents in this Palestinian village have been collecting tear gas grenades that Israeli security forces leave. But the reason they have been collecting these grenades might be different than you think.
They collect these tear gas canisters to grow plants in them.They plant gardens full of flowers grown inside tear-gas grenades collected from clashes between Israeli soldiers and local Palestinians.
They have planted flowers in hundreds of different grenades now.
The unusual garden is meant to show that life can spring from death.
The grenades killed several people during their weekly protests against Israel’s West Bank separation barrier.
It’s so sad that there is so much violence in the world. It’s even more sad that people are using grenades that killed people to honor those killed.
