Engulfed in war, Israel turns to technology to identify burned, tortured bodies
By Sheri Walsh, Oct. 24, 2023 / 8:27 PM

Oct. 24 (UPI) -- The organization charged with identifying hundreds of unidentifiable burned and tortured bodies from the war in Israel is turning to advanced technology as the National Center of Forensic Medicine's director admits "not all bodies will be identified."

"I've been a forensic pathologist for over 30 years, so it's rare for anything to truly shock me," said Dr. Chen Kugel, the institute's director. "I witnessed it all, I scrutinized every detail, observing bodies subjected to horrifying abuse, from adults to children, in various states of decay. But nothing, nothing in my entire career, prepared me for the horrors we've seen since that fateful Black Saturday on October 7."

"It's unimaginable. It's evil incarnate," Kugel said, adding that volunteers often become visibly distressed.

"We found a father, embracing his little boy from a charred lump, both victims of close-range gunshots. The perpetrators didn't stop there; they burned the bodies and even wrapped iron wire around them. To call it 'cruelty' would be an understatement. It's a heinous crime against humanity, a chilling testament to the depths of human darkness."

"These are things we have not seen since the Nazis," said Col. Rabbi Ham Weisberg, head of the army's rabbinic division. "We are seeing trucks arriving with whole families inside -- grandparents, mothers, fathers and children -- and we are still collecting bodies from the roads, homes, playgrounds and fields where they were killed."

"Young girls, elderly women, raped ... Soldiers and citizens whose heads were chopped off," Weisberg said as he got choked up, adding that they have to use three methods to identify people.

The first is a loved one's visual identification. The second is dental records. And the third is DNA identification, which Weisberg said has been used in most cases because the bodies are so badly mutilated.

The clown squad will probably claim it's CGI or something.

This is why I do not expect Israel to give in to worldwide demands for a cease fire, never mind a two state solution. This is why I expect Israel to attack Hezbollah, and ramp up the low level war they have been waging against Iran for years to a full scale war. It may not be tomorrow, it could be after if and when they are done with Hamas or the other way around. My feeling is the delay in invading Gaza is as much about the war cabinet disagreeing about the order the “preventative” wars then it is about the hostages.

I can't help but look at this with skepticism considering the utter nonsense Israel's official twitter account posts and their use of weaponry banned by the Geneva Convention. Israel is, at its core, a colonizing terrorist state.

Both sides of the conflict are going to have trouble identifying bodies.

It’s horrific and devastating either way.

It's enough hearing about and seeing the gruesome slaughter every day on news reports - there's no reason to post links to it here.

There's even less reason to troll posters.

Locked.
