Israeli air forces used internationally banned white phosphorus bombs during their attacks on Gaza towers, on Tuesday, October 10th, 2023.
Local sources documented the moment Israeli occupation airstrikes fired phosphorus bombs at civilians while shelling the vicinity of Al-Karama Towers in the Gaza Strip.
These perilous kinds of bombs were first used in the 2008 Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip, marking the second in the “Al-Aqsa Flood” historic war.
According to Human Rights Watch, white phosphorus can burn people to the bone, smoulder inside the body, and reignite when bandages are removed.
In addition, white phosphorus is toxic to humans, for it can seep into the bloodstream through the skin, poisoning the kidneys, liver, and heart and causing multiple organ failure.
Briefly, people can die simply from inhaling white phosphorus, HRW added.
The Israeli occupation has been striking residential buildings, towers, houses, schools, and hospitals and firing toxic gas for the fourth day in a row, raising the death toll to over 760 dead and over 4,000 wounded.
