kev. December 12, 2017, 5:55 pm. Thanks, Misterioso… but you forgot to also mention the DIME munitions, for which Israel chose Gaza as a testing ground by using them against civilians.
In the 2014 Gaza War, Israel was accused by Gazan doctors of using experimental and banned weapons on Palestinian civilians. DIME munitions, developed by the U.S. Air Force, which contain cancer-causing materials were said to have caused injury to Palestinian civilians on a number of occasions.

A Palestinian woman is standing in her kitchen when she hears a deafening bang. Rushing to her living room she sees her family in pieces, spread across floors, walls and ceiling. The horror is total and meaningless. Nobody meant it to happen, so what was its cause? The tragedy in Gaza surely marks the ...
The Israelis also used Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME) munitions that strip the flesh off the bone and cause microscopic metal particles to penetrate the victim's body. In addition, they used white phosphorous, which burns hot enough to eat through metal or flesh and is almost impossible to extinguish, ...
... chemical weapons, including white phosphorous, dense inert metal explosives (DIME) munitions, and flechette shells. In July 2014, in the midst of Israel's most recent attack on Gaza, Gilbert spoke with Electronic Intifada, revealing that he saw indications of renewed use of DIME weapons and flechettes.
Al-Zayat added that Israel used Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME), which had already been used in Operation Cast Lead. DIME weapons spread inert metal atoms that penetrate the human body and are difficult to get out of human tissue. He added that DIME munitions are used in the form of bombs that ...

In the early days of the Israeli war, Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert told a press conference in Al-Shifa Hospital that he found effects of DIME weapons on the bodies of the Palestinian casualties. “A good number of the injuries seen here are consistent with the use of dense inert metal explosives, or DIME, ...
Speaking in a press conference held in Gaza city late Saturday, the Palestinian Health undersecretary Youssef Abul Resh stated that "Medical teams have found wounds on the bodies of those killed and injured that are caused by the banned DIME weapons. Foreign doctors in Gaza have confirmed that ...
More recently, Israel's repeated attacks on Gaza have fuelled claims that it is using Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME) munitions, an experimental weapon not yet covered by international treaties. Its blast causes severe internal damage to victims and leaves traces of carcinogenic metals such as tungsten ...

Before the Oslo Accords were signed Israel never used its full arsenal of F-16s, phosphorous bombs, and DIME weapons to attack refugee camps in the Gaza and the West Bank. Over 1,200 Palestinians were killed from 1987-1993 during the first intifada. Israel eclipsed that number during its three-week ...
When it comes to the DIME weapons, we have seen a substantial number of amputations, where the amputees do not have shrapnel injuries. On the contrary, they have torn apart their legs, often one or two or even three limbs, their arm also. Some of them are beyond salvage, because the amputations are ...
The wounds from these weapons are untreatable because of the tungsten dust that forms micro-shrapnel. Israel has denied using these weapons and international experts are unable to confirm DIME weapons. A geneticist from the University of Genoa, Paola Manduca, says she has seen four photos that ...

"We have not seen the casualties affected directly by the bomb because they are normally torn to pieces and do not survive, but we have seen a number of very brutal amputations... without shrapnel injuries which we strongly suspect must have been caused by the DIME weapons," he added. A patient at ...
Qidra points to recent reports that Israel has been using so-called DIME weapons – dense inert metal explosives – on civilian areas, which have, in turn, led to a sharp increase in severe injuries. According to Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert, who volunteered at Al Shifa during the current operation and Cast ...
