Media: the aircraft of the USA has used in Syria ammunition with white phosphorus


At airstrike of the coalition on the city of Hadzhin in the province Deyr - эз - Szohr civilians have suffered. In particular, it is reported about death of three children. As far as can these data be authentic? Photo: Marko Djurica/Reuters the American aircraft has used in Syria ammunition with white phosphorus. The Syrian state news agency SANA has reported about it. According to him, at airstrike of the coalition led by the USA on the city of Hadzhin in the province Deyr - эз - Szohr civilians have suffered. In particular, it is reported about death of three children as a result of airstrike on the village of Shaafa. Use of ammunition by the international coalition with white phosphorus isn't a sensation. And here whether civilians have really suffered from them, should be confirmed still, the war correspondent Oleg Blokhin:oleg Blochin the war correspondent "says the USA strikes blows accurately to fighters of Islamic State. All the time, and justification — well used phosphoric bombs, these are fighters of ISIL, the absolute evil therefore they don't take a steam bath in this plan, apply quietly. Not the fact that it the American planes could be concrete, it could be English, French — there the coalition whole, any of them was able to do it. There or fighting was conducted, or someone from informants who is on that party, just gives to Americans that there is a group of fighters, they strike blow. As a rule, Americans do it without check. Therefore here even: well, have applied and have applied, they always applied it, apply and, I think, will apply. Especially when they can't beat out fighters, they use these phosphoric bombs at once. It is information from there either from the place, or from sources of fighters, quite I assume that civil have died, don't sort especially — the pilot beats coordinate, and it is quite possible that there could be also civil. If there are photos, video confirmation and, it is already possible to claim that they have suffered civil, but whether it is so possible to claim precisely about death civil, I don't know". Phosphoric ammunition has been developed at the beginning of the last century and was widely used already during World War I. Various international agreements, including the additions to the Geneva Convention accepted in 1977 limit use of the incendiary ammunition filled with white phosphorus in regions where there is a risk that under blow the civilian population can get. It is connected as with extremely not selective striking effect of similar ammunition, and with side effects of phosphorus — poisoning. The USA and Israel haven't signed these additional protocols to the convention. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
