Yellow Arabic inscripted canister – Egypt – Tah15

In Egypt on November 26, 2011 by teargasid Tagged: , , ,

Our first non Made in USA or China (alleged) tear gas canister. Found in Tahrir, photo by Maggie Osama via @Catherina_News

No ID yet.

Anyone read arabic?

——————————-

Update: Looks like this might be Egypt made. Probably by the “Military chemical company” Banha. Though this is unconfirmed.

Further one can speculate if this info is related to the aleged use of chemical weapons.

“In March 1989, United States and Swiss officials claimed that Egypt had imported from Switzerland the main elements of a plant capable of manufacturing poison gas. Mubarak denied that Egypt had either the facilities or the plans for producing chemical weapons.”

This quote is from this website.

There is no ID on these yet.

And off course, it would be practically impossible to ID from this photo only.

Though, someone somewhere must know something about it.
