Doctors in Gaza are reporting what they say are unexplained injuries among the dead and wounded in operations by the Israeli military, which have killed more than 200 Palestinians in the past nine weeks.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) is considering whether there is a case for an investigation into the injuries amid suspicions by the medics that the injuries were inflicted by what they claim may have been unidentified "non-conventional" weapons.
Palestinian Ministry of Health suggested that the medics' reports raise suspicion that Israel could be using "unprecedented" projectiles with "radiant" substances.
"We think this should be studied. In some cases we have opened the abdomen and found very fragmented organs," said Dr Juma al Saqqa, the director of public relations at Shifa Hospital, describing injuries of some of the victims as "very strange".
