Caption:GAZA CITY, : TO GO WITH STORY BY JENNIE MATTHEW SLUGGED MIDEAST-PALESTINIAN-ISRAEL-MILITARY-HEALTH:- A Palestinian man with severe injuries lies in a hospital bed at the al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City, 27 July 2006. The man's injuries are being queried by Palestinian medics and International organizations. Accusations abound that the Israelis, pressing a nearly five-week offensive in which143 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza, are using a new weapon. Doctors say they have never before seen such specific burn injuries, concentrated so much on the lower body and causing such a high propensity of amputations. The health ministry has already called for an independent inquiry. A French humanitarian group reported unusually severe injuries. One of its doctors reportedly raised the possibility that Israel used cluster bombs. Stuart Shepherd from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said "some kind of inquiry" was needed, confirming that the Palestinian health ministry had already requested an independent commission of inquiry.
