Reports of Phosphorous bombs
There are credible reports of phosphorous bombs being used by the Israeli army against the civilians in Gaza.

Phosphorous is a terrible weapon. It burns and keeps burning, even under water. Phosphorous bombs are banned by the Geneva convention.

If confirmed these actions would amount to war crimes. This is very bad. The Israeli soldiers should refuse to commit war crimes in this war. There should be serious protests if these reports are confirmed.
