Israel has been trying out new weapons and ammunition on Palestinians in Gaza since October 7, 2023, testing new weapons like rifles, tanks, and missiles,  claiming it is doing so to defend itself, however, according to Anadolu Agency, they’re also using these weapons in attacks on civilians.

compiled information on the weapons and ammunition tested by Israel for the first time on Palestinians in Gaza since October 7, 2023, in the massacres it has been carrying out against Palestine, for which it is being tried for genocide in the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
They’ve set up a new reserve brigade called “Hashomer (Guardian) 855 Brigade” after October 7. This brigade is supposed to protect settlements near Gaza, but it’s also used in attacks on Gaza.

Different army units, like the Kfir Infantry Brigade and the 5th Reserve Division, are involved too. Israel has even formed a new tank brigade called “Phoenix” and is using it in Gaza.

They’re also trying out new weapons like the “Negev” machine gun and new rockets called Holit and Yated. These weapons are supposed to be more accurate and powerful.
Israel is using new mortar shells called “Iron Sting” or “Steel Sting” that can hit targets accurately from far away. They’re also using night vision goggles for the first time.

Overall, Israel is testing lots of new weapons in Gaza, and it’s causing a lot of harm to the Palestinians living there.

Israel recently tested some brand-new tanks and armored vehicles in Gaza. It’s the first time they’ve used these in the area.
They brought out their latest “Barak” tank battalion in Gaza, which they got in September 2023. These tanks have cool features like using artificial intelligence (AI) to give commanders real-time data, kind of like what fighter pilots have in their helmets.

These tanks also have something called “Iron Vision,” which lets the commander see all around the tank like it’s see-through. And they’ve got a defense system called “Trophy” that protects against missiles from all directions. Plus, they’re packing a powerful 120mm gun.

Alongside the tanks, Israel introduced the “Namer 1500” armored vehicle for the first time in Gaza. It’s got a strong engine and touch screens for controls, with better armor than before. It even has a remote-controlled gun station and that same “Trophy” defense system.

Israel also brought out the “Eitan” wheeled vehicle during clashes in Gaza. It’s got a big gun, an anti-aircraft gun, and a machine gun for carrying troops and weapons. It’s equipped with the “Iron Fist” protection system too.
These new additions show Israel is beefing up its military in the region, using high-tech gear to stay safe in tense situations.
