Red Cross: Israel's use of white phosphorus not illegal

The International Red Cross said Tuesday that Israel has fired white phosphorus shells in its offensive in the Gaza Strip, but has no evidence to suggest it is being used improperly or illegally.


The comments came after a human rights organization accused the Jewish state of using the incendiary agent, which ignites when it strikes targets and can cause serious injuries. (AP)
