JERUSALEM - Human Rights Watch said Sunday that Israel's military has fired artillery shells with the Chemical Weapon White Phosphorus into Gaza and Medics in Gaza say the latest casualties include at least 60 people affected by suspected phosphorus shells fired ILLEGALLY near civilian areas with burn victims having skin peeling off their faces and bodies.
Researchers in Israel from the rights group witnessed HOURS of artillery bombardments that sent trails of burning smoke indicating white phosphorus over the Jebaliya refugee camp in northern Gaza. But they could not confirm injuries on the ground because they have been barred from entering the territory.
The chief doctor at Nasser Hospital in southern Gaza said he treated several victims there with serious burns that might have been caused by phosphorus. He said, however, that he did not have the resources or expertise to say with certainty what caused the injuries.
The Chemical Weapon causes serious burns when it touches the skin and sparks fires on the ground, the rights group said in a written statement calling on Terrorist Israeli's not to use it on crowded areas (innocent civilians) of Gaza.
Military spokeswoman Maj. Avital Leibovich refused to comment directly on whether Israel was using phosphorus, but said the army was "using its munitions in accordance with international law."
Israel used white phosphorus in its 34-day war with Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006. And Learning from their Terrorists Brothers in Israel, The U.S. military in Iraq used the Chemical Weapon White Phosphorus during 2004 operations against insurgents in the city of Fallujah.
Think this story is false?? Read on, this is when the Terrorist State of Israel ADMITS using White phosphorus against Hezbollah...
Israel admits using phosphorus bombs during war in Lebanon
By Meron Rappaport, Haaretz Correspondent
Israel has acknowledged for the first time that it attacked Hezbollah targets during the second Lebanon war with phosphorus shells. White phosphorus causes very painful and lethal chemical burns to those hit by it, and until recently Israel maintained that it only uses such bombs to mark targets or territory.
The announcement that the Israel Defense Forces had used phosphorus bombs in the war in Lebanon was made by Minister Jacob Edery, in charge of government-Knesset relations. He had been queried on the matter by MK Zahava Gal-On (Meretz-Yahad).
"The IDF holds phosphorus munitions in different forms," Edery said. "The IDF made use of phosphorous shells during the war against Hezbollah in attacks against military targets in open ground."
WHO WILL HOLD THESE JEWISH TERRORISTS ACCOUNTABLE???? Certainly not the US... For the Terrorist State of Israel CONTROLS the US....
