According to her, there were no IS terrorists in the building *. A representative of the Red Crescent noted that the hospital serves about 100 thousands of people in the city.

SANA previously reported a coalition use of phosphorus bombs on Raqqa 9 airstrikes in June. According to the agency, not less than 17 people were victims of blows.

The use of phosphorus ammunition as weapons prohibited by a number of international agreements. A coalition led by the United States to combat the IG * stated that it uses them in Syria in accordance with international standards, taking precautions against civilians. Criticizing the use of phosphorus bombs was made by the international human rights organization Human Rights Watch.
The United States, with 2014, is conducting an operation in Syria against the IG * without the consent of the country's authorities. A coalition spokesman said on Thursday that almost half of Raqqi was freed from terrorists.

IG * - a terrorist group is banned in Russia.

          You won’t be surprised ... Nobody will land anyone. If near the side of Russia the Russian (Russian-speaking) population was bombarded with phosphorus munitions and no one scratched themselves ... Even when the Americans deliver a preventive nuclear strike against the Russian Federation, all the Russian media will broadcast that this is a mistake (violation), which is impossible. And when the Russian population burns in a nuclear fire, our leaders will be in Moscow, in an underground city, plan retaliatory sanctions ... We are now hostages of the toothless leadership of the country. They are more important than oil and gas prices than fertility and population. They are beaten in the face in Europe, and they all go (send contractors) to bow to the fucking puppets. War? Yes, she will be in this situation. Only if you first erase the American bases along the borders of the Russian Federation, start drowning the American vessels that have arrived in our hemisphere, only then they will calm down overseas. Everything was already, everything will be repeated at the next round of the historical spiral ...

With the American layman or with the world (I emphasize) the elite that does not want to strengthen Russia?

      They refer to Convention on the Prohibition or Restriction of the Use of Specific Weapons Which May Be Considered to cause excessive damage or have indiscriminate effect from 1980 year. (http://www.conventions.ru/view_base.php?id=1098), more specifically, the Protocol on the Prohibition or Limitation of the Use of Incendiary Weapons (Protocol III) of this Convention.
      This protocol states that
      Incendiary weapons do not include:
      ...
      ammunition that may have a random incendiary or burn effect, such as lighting, tracer shells, smoke or signal systems;

      That is why in the armies of the United States and Israel, phosphorus ammunition is "considered" signal and smoke.
      That is, officially, the United States simply zoomed a little in the hospital area. Or smoked. And the fact that at the same time everything burned out there is such a collateral damage.

      PS - by the way, I have already repeatedly suggested: it would be necessary to supply the Palestinian comrades with more of these phosphorus munitions. And the fact that they are beating all sorts of DIY on Israel? People are killing how much in vain ... And so - they will simply honk and smoke. Like their Israeli partners in the political process. And there will be such military-political parity in harmlessness and complete air comfort (s)

            Of course, and more than once in Lebanon and in Gaza:
            During the Lebanon War, phosphorus munitions were used by the Israeli armed forces (in particular, in 1982, 155-mm artillery shells equipped with white phosphorus were used by the IDF during the siege of Beirut)
            In July-August 2006, during the Second Lebanon War, the Israeli army used phosphorus munitions (in particular, artillery shells and white phosphorus bombs) throughout Lebanon. Subsequently, Israel denied the use of ball bombs and phosphoric ammunition - until then, until their use was not proven by military experts UNIFIL. Lebanese President Emil Lahoud made a statement that civilians were injured by Israelis using phosphorus shells. After that, a representative of the Government of Israel made a statement that phosphorus shells were used "only at military facilities." Knesset Relations Minister Yaakov Edri said Israel’s use of phosphorus munitions is not a violation of international law because Israel and the United States did not sign the third protocol of the 1983 Geneva Convention
            In 2009, during Operation Cast Lead, the Israeli army used phosphorus munitions in the Gaza Strip. Mostly used 155-mm shells with white phosphorus
            The shelling of Gaza by the Israeli regime in 2014.

      Phosphorus ammunition doesn’t seem to be prohibited

      But in fact, everything is somewhat different:
      Additional 1977 protocols to the 1949 Geneva Convention for the Protection of Victims of War prohibiting the use of white phosphorus ammunition if civilians endanger it. USA and Israel did not sign them.
      And about the fact that "white and fluffy" Israel allegedly abandoned chemical weapons, this is another "duck":
      Israel does not intend to ratify the Chemical Weapons Convention

      Israel signed the international Convention on the Non-Proliferation of Chemical Weapons in 1993. But this document has not been ratified by the Knesset. Therefore, Israel has so far always refused any checks by international inspectors and has not made any obligations that its actions will always comply with all points of this Convention.
      http://9tv.co.il/news/2013/09/12/158641.html

      So you need to understand that the United States and Israel in particular are such "harmless paws" only in words, but in reality they are "wolves" capable of any "vile step" in relation to other countries and popular patriotic movements like Hezbollah.

        In general, the same arrangement is in effect that the 314ndos do not fly to the other side of the Euphrates and they are not touched. But then it seems to me that there was a reason to drop them on the ground, so that they would no longer bomb the myrrh, and even phosphorus.

    Well, not surprising, the United States continues to bend its line. I wonder what will happen when ISIS and other groups that are not loyal to the West are cleaned up, and will the US go to free Syria from Assad? This is a very realistic scenario, when the United States through satellites / mercenaries will begin a ground operation against the forces of the SAR, will help from the air and by sea. The only hope is for Iran, which (although it will not be able to prevent such a scenario), but can make the United States pay dearly for the invasion, because the Iranians are next in line. As for ours, I won’t be surprised if they withdraw the Air Force and say that the terrorists are over, ISIS won and there is nothing more to do there, and the Syrian struggle against the West does not concern us. Indeed, in order to confront the United States in Syria (not to cooperate!), Political will is needed, which is not yet visible on the horizon.

    When burning, white phosphorus develops temperatures up to 1300 ° C. The burning temperature of phosphorus munitions depends on a number of conditions (the type of ammunition used, temperature and humidity, etc.) and is 900–1200 ° C. The burning temperature of incendiary ammunition with a charge of white phosphorus and a combustible substance is 800–900 ° C. Combustion is accompanied by copious liberation of thick, pungent white smoke and continues until all phosphorus is burned out, or until the flow of oxygen stops.
