‘Birth defects’ from Israeli bombs

Doctors blame toxic waste left by munitions for deformities in Gaza babies.

Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip in 2006 and last winter have left a high concentration of toxic metals in its soil, according to the findings of a weapons research group made up of independent doctors and scientists based in Italy.
Doctors in Gaza believe the toxic wastes, along with the trauma of war, is the reason they’re seeing a high number of babies with birth defects.
