Depleted uranium found in Gaza victims

Medics tell Press TV they have found traces of depleted uranium in some Gazan residents wounded in Israel's ground offensive into the strip.

Norwegian medics told Press TV correspondent Akram al-Sattari that some of the victims who have been wounded since Israel began its attacks on the Gaza Strip on December 27 have traces of depleted uranium in their bodies.

The report comes after Israeli tanks and troops swept across the border into Gaza on Saturday night, opening a ground operation after eight days of intensive attacks by Israeli air and naval forces on the impoverished region.

Would that be the same intelligence source as Bush had for WMD?
It was reported by PressTV which is based in Iran. It's hard to say where the source is really other than Norwegian medics. And like any other media outlet, hard to prove without closer scruiny and collaboration from several sources.
I'm not really curious as to why Norwegian medics might be there, but why are they checking for radiation on the victims. In addition, if they are checking, why are they finding traces of other words what is Hamas actually preparing for and who is helping them.
