Horrific images of the Palestinian victims of recent Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip have revealed that the self-proclaimed Jewish state is using internationally-proscribed weapons, according to Palestinian doctors and rights activists.
Palestinian Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qodra said the bodies of most victims had been incinerated, while others had been completely torn apart.
He said Israel was deploying weapons that destroy the bodies of their victims, noting that a preliminary survey of victims' bodies revealed the horrific nature of the weapons being used in Israel's ongoing onslaught on Gaza.
"Israel used internationally-banned weapons in its two previous wars on Gaza," al-Qodra told Anadolu Agency. "The same weapons are being used now."
He called on international rights organizations to bring Israel to account for what he called "its continual violations" against the Palestinian people.
Eyewitnesses, meanwhile, have reported that Israeli airstrikes had incinerated the bodies of Palestinians who happened to be near targeted sites.
Israeli warplanes, they added, were using missiles that destroy their victims' bodies, often cutting them to pieces.
