blindness of human rights over white phosphorus on Al raqqa



In the name of fighting ISIS, the US backed international coalition is dropping white phosphorus all across AL raqqa “city in north Syria”.

And this weapon which can melt the flesh of a human to the bone, and this weapon is Internationally prohibited, and not for use against civilize under any circumstances.

Were is what they called on them selfies “white helmets” or those who clime that they scrim for human rights?

why don’t we hear there voices? why they close their eyes, they don’t see any more?

Maybe they don’t take the permission yet, or just some people have the right to live?

If they are truly support the humminty  every one should stand in front this extermination, not just pick one issue or one side, and said “yah i support human right”.

This not the first time the white phosphorus had been used:

In Iraq 

In April 2004, during the First Battle of Fallujah, Darrin Mortenson of California’s North County Times reported that white phosphorus was used as an incendiary weapon. Embedded with the 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, Mortenson described a Marine mortar team using a mixture of white phosphorus and high explosives to shell a cluster of buildings where insurgents had been spotted throughout the week.

In November 2004, during the Second Battle of Fallujah, Washington Post reporters embedded with Task Force 2-2, Regimental Combat Team 7, wrote on November 9, 2004 that “Some artillery guns fired white phosphorus (WP) rounds that create a screen of fire that cannot be extinguished with water.” Insurgents reported being attacked with a substance that melted their skin, a reaction consistent with white phosphorus burns.

On November 9, 2005 the Italian state-run broadcaster Radiotelevisione Italiana S.p.A. aired a documentary titled “Fallujah, The Hidden Massacre”, alleging that the United States used white phosphorus as a weapon in Fallujah causing insurgents and civilians to be killed or injured by chemical burns.
The filmmakers further said that the United States used incendiary MK-77 bombs in violation of Protocol III of the 1980 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons.
The documentary also included footage which purported to be of white phosphorus being fired from helicopters over Fallujah. It also quoted journalist Giuliana Sgrena, who had been in Fallujah, as a testimony.

On November 15, 2005, U.S. Department of Defense spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Barry Venable confirmed to the BBC that white phosphorus had been used as an incendiary anti-personnel weapon in Fallujah.
