Report: Gaza Mortars Contain Phosphorus

Sappers who checked the components of one of the mortar shells that landed close to Kibbutz Kerem Shalom discovered that it contained phosphorus, according to a Sunday evening report by Channel 2 television.

The use of the substance in missiles is illegal under international law. Gaza sources often accuse Israel of using weapons containing the banned substance.
