Israel is being accused of using white phosphorus on civilian areas in Gaza.
The following photographs come from a normally reliable source and were taken at the UNRWA School in Beit Lahia in Gaza:
To get a visual feeling of what it means for a school – sheltering civilians – to be subjected to Israeli white phosphorous bombs … rain of inextinguishable fire balls falling from the sky in all directions, deliberately designed to cause maximum death and destruction.
No wonder it is illegal to use white phosphorous as a weapon of war, particularly in civilian settings, let alone a UN shelter!
In this criminal attack two children were killed, their mother lost her legs, and dozens of children and women were injured – some from inhaling the phosphorous smoke, the effects of which will only be revealed with time.
