Israel tested new weapons in Gaza

Israel tested new weapons in Gaza?:

"The Palestinian Authority is calling for an international investigation of the weapons used by Israel during its three-week assault on Gaza. There are claims so-called DIME bombs were dropped from drone aircraft. This kind of bomb is designed to produce an intense explosion in a small space."

Dense Inert Metal Explosive (DIME), also called a dime bomb, is an experimental type of explosive that has a relatively small but effective blast radius. It is manufactured by producing a homogeneous mixture of a high explosive material (such as HMX (High Melting Explosive) or RDX (Cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine) and small particles of a chemically inert material such as tungsten. It is intended to limit the distance at which the explosion causes damage, to avoid collateral damage in warfare.
