Egyptian legal committee warns of Israeli use of chemical weapons against Palestinians in Gaza
IMEMC & Agencies - Sunday, 23 July 2006, 02:40


An Egyptian legal committee has warned of the serious consequences of the Israeli use of chemical weapons against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip for more than a week now, and have called for an international investigation of the claim.


The committee for citizens' rights in northern Sinai, adjacent to the Gaza Strip, charged that the Israeli warplanes have been releasing chemical materials against the Palestinian populace in the Strip for the past week.

It said that the chemical agents cause extraordinary burns that could turn into cancer and added that they could also cause miscarriages and death of patients especially those suffering chest diseases.

The committee said its members saw the warplanes releasing those chemicals from the Egyptian-Palestinian borders.

Doctors treating Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have called for an international investigation of the types of weapons being used by Israel, as many of the patients have burns that are indicative of possible chemical weapon use by Israel. The organs, particularly the kidney and spleen, of the victims continue to burn even after the person has been declared clinically dead, according to doctors in hospitals throughout the Gaza Strip.

Naturally, this is in addition to the depleted uranium which we ALREADY know the Israelis are using, since it's ubiquitious in the armaments that they GET FROM THE USA...

I was about to reply, then I saw your comment. It is almost verbatim to what my reply would have been.

Still nothing definitive, but for the record...

MIDDLE EAST: 'HIGHLY LIKELY' ISRAELIS USED CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN QANA


Beirut, 2 August (AKI) - The Israeli military may have used chemical weapons against civilians in last Sunday's deadly bombardment of an apartment block in the southern Lebanese city of Qana, a senior local Lebanese medic has told Adnkronos International (AKI). "From an initial examination of the corpses and body parts that have been arriving here each day, it is highly likely that the Israeli army used various kinds of chemical weapons in the attack," said Mustafa Jarradi, the department head of the main hospital in the southern port city of Tyre, which has been receiving victims from Qana.

At least 60 people, including 30 children, were killed in the attack.

"I don't rule out the possibility that the Israeli military has used phosphorous," said Jarradi, appealing to international laboratories to test the Qana victims' remains and confirm his diagnosis.

"To be certain, sophisticated analysis is needed, which we are currently unable to carry out as we are struggling to cope with the victims of the conflict in the south which we are admitting to hospital each day," Jarradi stressed.

"Help us to uncover the truth about these Israeli war crimes," Jarradi urged. The 55-year-old doctor says he treated victims of Israeli chemical attacks during Lebanon's civil war in the 1980s.

The Lebanese press in recent days carried reports alleging that Israel may have used white phosphorous, high pressure and electromagnetic bombs against Lebanese civilians.

Tyre central hospital has been receiving victims of Israeli aerial attacks on outlying villages including Qana since the Israeli offensive began after Hezbollah guerrillas on 12 July snatched two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid.

Thousands of injured people from war zones across southern Lebanon have been admitted to the central hospital and other hospitals in Tyre over the past three weeks.

Thanks for the updates dominique. I haven't had any luck with lab reports either. The article below provides additional information on the bizarre nature of the wounds that are occurring to Palestinians in Gaza. It sounds like something that creates a small explosion after it is lodged in internal tissue and then continues to burn, the last paragraph indicates that the Palestinian medical people are having a hard time obtaining international cooperation on this investigation. I found a site with an extensive index on illegal weapons being used in Lebanon here.

Israeli Terrorist Forces Use New Unconventional Weapons Killing Body Cells, Exposing Bones, Causing Amputations

Ministry of Health report on toxic Israeli weapons confirmed by Gaza City medical sources

PNN, (Gaza City) Bisan Hisham 13 July 06

Director of Public Relations at Gaza City’s Al Shifa Hospital, Dr. Juma Al Saqqa, confirmed the Palestinian Ministry of Health’s report from earlier this week which stated that Israeli forces are using toxic weapons in the Gaza Strip.

The doctor spoke on Thursday, giving the death count at 85 Palestinians in the Strip since the latest Israeli attack began. Among the dead are 34 children under the age of 13. And as of Thursday afternoon, 300 Palestinians are injured.

Dr. Al Saqqa told Voice of Palestine Radio that the Israeli army is using new types of unconventional weapons against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip during the recent attacks. He said, "They are targeting the Palestinian body with unconventional weapons and with that comes a phenomena we have not seen before in any Israeli bombardment we have lived through for many years."

He continued, "The hospital is central and sees almost all cases of injuries and deaths as a result of Israeli bomb attacks against the Palestinians of the Gaza Strip. These Israeli bombings are entering the body and fragmenting, causing internal combustion leading to up to fourth degree internal burns, exposing the bone, and affecting the tissue and skin."

The doctor added, "These tissues die, they do not survive, which obliges us to perform arm or leg amputations, and there are fragments which penetrate the body and do not show up on X-rays. When entering the body they spark like a combustion firearm, but not chemically. They seem radioactive."

He confirmed that there were dozens of wounded legs and arms. Many of them had been burned from the inside, and distorted to the point that they cannot return to life again.

Yesterday, Wednesday, was one of the most bloody of all in the recent attacks. Israeli forces killed 25 Palestinians. Dr. Al Sakka said, "It is escalating day after day. Yesterday alone Israeli forces killed 25 and injured dozens. Among them so many were children."

Dr. Al Sakka revealed that the Israelis completely destroyed by the lab which would help in diagnosing such cases. "We no longer have the ability to make these examinations on phenomena that we see is not normal."

He called on the international community to examine the latest weapons however the doctor reported that "no one has lifted a finger." Dr. Al Sakka complained that he did not see any foreign medical institution interested in the use of new weapons and their affects on the human body. He said, "What we found were journalists who came to take pictures, but as for the medical community, nothing."

New, Deadly Weapons Used by Israel on Lebanon, Gaza

Paola Manduca, Arab News —

By now there are countless reports, from hospitals, witnesses, armament experts and journalists that strongly suggest that in the current offensive, Israeli forces are using “new weapons” in Lebanon and Gaza.

New and strange symptoms are reported amongst the wounded and the dead.

Bodies with dead tissues and no apparent wounds; “shrunken” corpses; civilians with heavy damage to lower limbs that require amputation, which is nevertheless followed by unstoppable necrosis and death; descriptions of extensive internal wounds with no trace of shrapnel, corpses blackened but not burned, and others heavily wounded that did not bleed.

Many of these descriptions suggest the possibility that the new weapons used include “direct energy” weapons, and chemical and/or biological agents, in a sort of macabre experiment of future warfare, where there is no respect for anything: International rules (from the Geneva Convention to the treaties on biological and chemical weapons), refugees, hospitals and the Red Cross, not to mention the people, their future, their children, the environment, which is poisoned through dissemination of Depleted Uranium and toxic substances released after oil and chemical depots are bombed.

Right now, the Lebanese and Palestinian people have many urgent and impellent problems, yet many people believe that these episodes cannot and must not pass ignored. In fact several appeals have been launched to scientists and experts with a view to investigating the issue. With the intent of responding to such appeals, we have set up a team to investigate the testimonies, the images, and possibly the material evidence that delegations and NGOs will be able to bring from the affected areas. We want to offer support to the health institutions of Lebanon and Palestine, which ask constantly for help and external verification and monitoring, and we are examining all available materials in order to formulate hypotheses which can be verified or disproved.

We ask for the active participation of our (Italian) scientific institutions, and, following the request from medical personnel in the conflict area, we are requesting that the UN set up an international independent verification and investigation committee, with a view to facilitating entry into the conflict zone, as well as collecting material and testimonies directly in the field, and undertaking inquiries and verifications concerning the various claims regarding these new kinds of weapons of mass destruction being used by Israeli forces in Lebanon. We request that such investigating teams be set up immediately, and that procedures be defined and implemented with a view to supporting future investigations. Of particular concern is the issue of how to collect and store samples from the different theaters, with a view to preserving important information regarding the various impacts of these weapons.

We ask that the international committee have access to all sources of information, that it be fully operational, while abiding by relevant investigative procedures, including cross-checking of information between different laboratories.

As people and as scientists, we are offering our time and expertise in order to reach an understanding of the underlying facts, in the belief that a perspective of justice, equity and peace among people can be reached only with the respect of the rules defined up to now within the international community of nations. The issue pertains to the behavior of the parties in an armed conflict.

We ask that the respect of these rules be verified in the context of the present conflict. We invite scientists to contribute to this effort by offering their specific competences. In particular we seek collaboration of toxicology experts, pharmacologists, anatomy pathologists, doctors with an expertise in trauma and burns, chemists. They can reach the working group at the e-mail address: nuovearmi@gmail.com

— Paola Manduca is professor of genetics, University of Genova, Italy.
