ISRAELI WAR CRIMES: Amazing Footage White Phosphorus Attack Over Gaza (VIDEO)

White phosphorus


Injuries from white phosphorus produce extensive, deep second and third degree burns.

One reason why this occurs is the tendency of the element to stick to the skin.

Phosphorus burns carry a greater risk of mortality than other forms of burns due to the absorption of phosphorus into the body through the burned area, resulting in liver, heart and kidney damage, and in some cases multiple organ failure.

These weapons are particularly dangerous to exposed people because white phosphorus continues to burn unless deprived of oxygen or until it is completely consumed.

Smoke inhalation

Burning white phosphorus produces a hot, dense, white smoke consisting mostly of phosphorus pentoxide.

Exposure to heavy smoke concentrations of any kind for an extended period (particularly if near the source of emission) causes illness or death.

White phosphorus smoke irritates the eyes, mucous membranes of the nose, and respiratory tract in moderate concentrations, while higher concentrations can produce severe burns.

Moldex Mold Inhibitor sprayed into my a/c ducts...equals poisonous inhalations. Qualified maintenance men did this! I'm getting better, still sick since Tuesday though.
