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.
