Russia took matters into their own hands and dropped white phosphorus bombs in Syria. Their strategy was part of an intensive military campaign against ISIS in North West Syria.
While we are happy that they attacked ISIS in such a strong manner, latest reports have determined the chemical weapon is banned under the Geneva Convention. Presumably, Russia knows this and is just ignoring this fact!
White phosphorus, also called WP, is highly toxic and can burn through flesh and even bone. It does have its strategic benefits, however, as it also acts as a smokescreen during the day or can even illuminate specific targets during the night time hours. Did they weigh up the benefits vs the destruction it can cause?
Watch the video to see the WP rain down on an ISIS stronghold. It definitely got their point across leaving only smoke and fire in the wake of the explosions.
What a statement Russia made!
Occupy Deplorables reports:
Reports claim that Russia has dropped deadly white phosphorus bombs in northwest Syria, as its intensive military campaign against ISIS continues.
White phosphorus, an incendiary also known as WP, is used by armies to illuminate targets during the night or as a smokescreen during the day. The chemical weapon is banned under the Geneva Convention, because it is highly toxic and can burn through flesh and bone.
