This report has been triggered by the warning launched in mid-july by some doctors of Gaza hospitals, who, for the first time, have treated inexplicable wounds which, in at least 62 cases, have caused the amputation of a lower limb. The doctors have often asked the help of the international community in order to understand the causes of these strange wounds which presented small fragments, often invisible to x-rays and inexplicable excisions caused by heat in lower limbs.
Several articles have appeared on national and international newpapers.
After a long research, the investigation team of Rai News 24 has identified the possible cause of these effects: it seems a new weapon dropped by unmanned drones, which is precisely teleguided to the target.
The weapon, according to the military magazine "Defence Tech", is called DIME which means "Dense Inert Metal Esplosive". It is a carbon shell that when it goes off breaks into small splinters. At the same time, there is the explosion of a charge which shoots a blade of tungsten dust charged with energy which burns and destroys everything in the radius of four meters with a really precise slant.
This technology is part of a new kind of "low lethality" weapons which downside collateral damages and restrain lethal effects.
Ugo Intini, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and the representatives of national and international press will participate into the broadcasting of the report.
