Israel is testing a new “extremely nasty” type of weapon in Gaza, two medics charged as they returned home to Norway on Monday after spending 10
days working at a hospital in the war-torn Palestinian territory.
“There’s a very strong suspicion I think that Gaza is now being used as a test laboratory for new weapons,” Mads Gilbert told reporters at
Oslo’s Gardermoen airport, commenting on the kinds of injuries he and his colleague Erik Fosse had seen while working at the Al Shifa Hospital in
The two medics, who were sent into the war zone by the pro-Palestinian aid organisation NORWAC on Dec 31, said they had seen clear signs that Dense
Inert Metal Explosives (DIME), an experimental kind of explosive, were being used in Gaza.
“This is a new generation of very powerful small explosives that detonates with an extreme power and dissipates its power within a range of five to
10 metres,” said Gilbert, 61.
It seems to me that in each and every conflict, something new is being tested on other human beings in combat. Could these be the 'reason' for the
conflict in the first place?
