On the evening of November 2, the Hong Kong police threw Chinese-made tear gas into reporters and volunteers during the clearance of Times Square in Causeway Bay. A first-aider was hit by the tear gas bomb, fell to the ground immediately and passed out.
Witnesses said that the first-aider was hit by a tear gas on his back. It was reported that the Hong Kong police use Chinese hand-throwing tear gas, which has a very high combustion temperature.
The Hong Kong police are running out of imported tear gas. Recently, it purchased a large amount of tear gas bombs from mainland China. It is the same model used by the CCP’s anti-terrorist forces with faster outbreak time and denser smoke, making it more difficult for the target to respond in time.
