Israeli officials said white phosphorus – an incendiary banned for offensive use under international law – was in two of nine mortar shells fired from Gaza into southern Israel. Israel itself has been accused of using the weapon in Gaza.
Gaza doctors add to the growing number of accounts that suggest Israel used white phosphorus munitions against international norms of war.
On Tuesday, the Israeli army denied using white phosphorus munitions. A Norwegian doctor claims Israel is using Gaza as a 'test laboratory for new weapons,' including Dense Inert Metal Explosives, or DIME.
