The airstrikes carried out by the US F-15s have caused major fires in Deir ez-Zor province, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation said in a statement, noting that information about “people killed and injured due to the strikes is being clarified.”

Two US F-15 jets on September 8 carried out strikes using banned phosphorus bombs in Deir ez-Zor province, the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation said in a statement.

“In Deir ez-Zor province on September 8, 2018, two F-15 aircraft of the US Air Force carried out strikes on the settlement of Hadjin with the use of phosphorus incendiary munitions. As a result of the strikes, major fires were observed. Information on victims and injured is being clarified,” Major-General Vladimir Savchenko stated, stressing that the use of weapons with white phosphorus is prohibited by an additional protocol to the 1949 Geneva Convention.

The US-led coalition, consisting of more than 70 countries, is conducting military operations against Daesh* in Syria and Iraq without UN or Syrian permission.

Esmer reportedly stated that the Pentagon was preparing to set up a missile defense shield in Syria’s northeastern cities of Al Hasakah and Rmelan.

In April, media reported that Daesh had succeeded in seizing the oil fields in the province of Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria, which was its former key stronghold, with the group using the oil fields to raise funds for its terror state.
This is not the first time that the US-led coalition is accused of conducting airstrikes on Deir ez-Zor.
In June, the US-led coalition reportedly hit positions of the Syrian Armed Forces in the Al Bukamal area, killing multiple Syrian servicemen and injuring several others.
In 2017, US airstrikes claimed the lives of six civilians, including three children, leading to Damascus’ accusations of the US-led coalition of using white phosphorus, prohibited by international convention, to damage infrastructure and kill civilians.

USA just following Netankowski’s orders after being promised a couple of Syrian oilfields. Using banned weapons makes even the likudniks look less evil.

Very amusing since Russia ALSO uses white-phosphorus incendiary bombs in Syria! Moreover, such weapons are only banned for the countries who signed the ban-treaty and neither USA, nor Russia did! Here we have some footages : https://tinyurl.com/y9ake6e2 https://tinyurl.com/y7z8m4e2 “Banned” Cluster bombs too : https://tinyurl.com/yctvt62u And personally, I have no problems with the use of these or of napalm, actually, thermobarics are even worst : even if not under the fire, it will blast your lungs due to the following vacuum… At least, when phosphorus falls, you have a little time to run for cover! In fact, I’m absolutely positive about… Read more »

Russia’s military has accused the U.S. Air Force of using banned white phosphorus bombs during air strikes in Syria‘s Deir ez-Zor province. The incendiary munitions were dropped on the village of Hajin, resulting in severe fires, according to a statement from the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria, a branch of the Russian Ministry of Defense. White phosphorus can legally be used to create smoke screens and signals, but its use in civilian areas is banned under the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the UN Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons. The substance causes horrific burns, and can be absorbed from the surface… Read more »
