Al-Jazeera is reporting that Dense Inert Metal Explosives — DIME weapons — were used in Gaza

Dense Inert Metal Explosives in Gaza Cause Death and Cancer

It seems Gaza was a weapons-testing lab for the use of a particularly toxic weapon: Dense Inert Metal Explosives


More from Al-Jazeera English:

Medics working in the Gaza Strip have condemned Israel’s use of suspected "new weapons" that inflict horrific injuries they say most surgeons will not have seen before.

Dr. Jan Brommundt, a German doctor working for Medecins du Monde in the south Gazan city of Khan Younis, described the injuries he had seen as "absolutely gruesome." […]

When detonated, a DIME device expels a blade of charged tungsten dust that burns and destroys everything within a four-meter radius.

Brommundt also described widespread but previously unseen abdominal injuries that appear minor at first but degenerate within hours, causing multiple organ failure. He said: 

"Initially, everything seems in order … but they will present within one to five hours with an acute abdomen which looks like appendicitis, but it turns out on operation that dozens of miniature particles can be found in all of their organs.

"It seems to be some sort of explosive or shell that disperses tiny particles at around 1-by-1 or 2-by-1 millimeters that penetrate all organs, these miniature injuries, you are not able to attack them surgically."

The doctors said many patients succumb to septicemia and die within 24 hours.

Dr. Erik Fosse, a Norwegian surgeon who worked at the Al-Shifa hospital in northern Gaza during the Israeli offensive in Gaza, told Al-Jazeera there was a significant increase in double amputations. He said:

"We suspect they [Israel] used DIME weapons because we saw cases of huge amputations or flesh torn off the lower parts of the body.

"The pressure wave [from a DIME device] moves from the ground upwards, and that’s why the majority of patients have huge injuries to the lower part of the body and abdomen." 

I can’t add much to that. I don’t know what to say, frankly.
