IAEA to look into Gaza uranium ammunition claim
Tue Jan 20, 2009 10:12pm EST

VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N.'s nuclear watchdog said Tuesday it would look into a claim by Vienna-based Arab ambassadors that Israel may have used ammunition containing depleted uranium in Gaza attacks.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said the request was made in a letter addressed to Director General Mohammed ElBaradei and was delivered by the Saudi Arabian ambassador on Monday on behalf of other Arab diplomats.

2. Why do militaries keep using us in their attacks?
Let DU be! ;-)

Since the IDF used white phosphorous, I have no reason to doubt that they used DU.

5. Nope.
Which is why I tend to believe Israel isn't using DU ammunition.
