Israel 'admits' using white phosphorus munitions - Times Online
Israel claims that their use was legal.
And yet by using Phosphorus bombs or Shells in a civilian area there were quite clearly in breach of Geneva Convention.
Quoted from article,
(Phosphorus bombs can be used to create smoke screens, but their use as weapons of war in civilian areas is banned by the Geneva Conventions.)
What I am unsure of is Israel a signatory of Geneva Convention on warfare?
For that matter has Palestine signed up to Geneva Convention on warfare?
