Israel tested new weapons in Gaza?

Dandelion Salad


The Palestinian Authority is calling for an international investigation of the weapons used by Israel during its three-week assault on Gaza. There are claims so-called DIME bombs were dropped from drone aircraft. This kind of bomb is designed to produce an intense explosion in a small space.

  1. Yes, it is quite sickening the way the Israeli’s will lie about anything. They are shameless. First they denied they were firing these weapons despite thousands of photos and videos that prove otherwise. These days, technology is advanced enough that Palestinians don’t have to just rely on eyewitnesses as in the past… What someone needs to do is to compile all the lies the Israeli’s told during this 22 day Gaza massacre in which over half of the victims were children, as well as the 33 day massacre on Lebanon by Israel in which they also used illegal weapons. Over a million bomblets were dropped on the South Lebanese countryside on the last day of bombing. Not only were the cluster bombs illegal, but they dropped these million bombs after they had already signed international cease-fire treaties.

  2. Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME)
    In mid-October 2006 a team of investigative journalists at RAI Italian television reported that Israel had been using a new weapon in the Gaza Strip, similar to DIME – dense inert metal explosive. The report was produced by the same journalists who claimed without foundation that the US used White Phosphorus (WP) against civilians during attacks on Fallujah. According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, the weapon was launched from drones in the summer of 2006, most of them in July, and led to “abnormally serious” physical injuries. Physicians in the Gaza Strip noted the pattern of wounds they were treating were unusual, with severed legs that showed signs of severe heat at the point of amputation but no metal shrapnel. The American version is still in a testing stage and had not been used on the battlefield at that time. It has not been “declared an illegal weapon”, though the weapon was claimed [without described basis] to be “highly carcinogenic and harmful to the environment”.

    This is their new toy.

  3. The accusation that Gazans set-up situations to make it look bad for the Israelis does not ring true, and seems a weak and ineffective statement to deflect the very righteous criticisms.
