US Accused of Dropping White Phosphorous in Syria

  • RT America Published on Oct 19, 2018
    Anya Parampil updates us on reports in Syrian media that the US coalition dropped white phosphorus, banned under the Geneva Conventions, in the Deir ez-Zor Governorate. Anya asks former UK MP George Galloway whether not a double standard exists when it comes to accusations of the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

IDF bombed Gaza with white phosphorus in 2009! The Israeli military even hit a UN headquarters(!) in Gaza with a chemical attack.

This Palestinian teenager is one of the victims of the Israeli military’s illegal white phosphorous missile attacks on unarmed civilians, including a UN relief compound set up to shelter and provide medical attention to Palestinian refugees. Israel’s military conducted its own investigation of the incidents, apologized for the attack and called it a “grave error.” A UN fact finding mission overseen by South African lawyer and former justice Richard Goldstone called the use of white phosphorous a “war crime.” [INTERNET PHOTO BY RADEN MAS SOTO]
