Israel using banned weapons?

According to several Lebanese newspapers, including the English-language newspaper the Daily Star, Israel has used phosphorus incendiary bombs as well as vacuum bombs. But those reports have not yet been confirmed. That was last week. And so far no major newspaper seems to have bothered to look into this.

Yesterday, BBC World did interview Lebanese doctors who were saying the same thing about some bodies that were brought in. The doctors sent some tissue to a lab for further investigation.

I contacted a friend at Amnesty International – Nederland who then contacted AI’s headoffice in London to see if they had received any news on this. Hopefully, they can come up with something.
