White Phosphorus Munitions

“The assaults on Fallujah by the United States military in April and November 2004 involved the use of white phosphorus. White phosphorus has extremely damaging effects on the health of victims, including severe burns and irritation of the respiratory system. [This analysis concludes that] the use of white phosphorus was illegal (per Chemical Weapons Convention, Protocol III to the Convention on Conventional Weapons and international humanitarian law) as it could be argued to be a chemical weapon, a riot control agent, or incendiary weapon. Furthermore, the methods and means of its use in Fallujah violated the wars of law.”
