Al-Manar claims Israeli use of phosphorus munitions in Lebanon

16

Al-Manar, a Hezbollah-affiliated news service, reported Israeli firing at Lebanese territory. The report says that on the evening of August 25, Israeli troops fired on Lebanese territory in the area of ​​the settlements of Hula, Aytarun and Mais al-Jabal.


The Israel Defense Forces are said to have used incendiary phosphorus munitions, causing a fire in the Kafr Shuba hills near the border with Israel.

Al-Manar reported that about two dozen phosphorous munitions were fired into Lebanon.

In turn, Israel is reporting an incident on the Israeli-Lebanese border, in connection with which traffic on several highways was temporarily stopped. Residents of border settlements were advised to stay in their homes and not leave them for some time.

The incident on the border with Lebanon was announced at a time when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was in the north of the country - not far from the zone of tension.

The Israeli Defense Ministry has not yet commented on the accusations of using phosphorus munitions.

    I think that the message about phosphorus munitions is not true. There was something fire hazardous there

      Phosphoric bp? And who will you surprise with this now? Human rights defenders, some kind of UN departments, or ordinary people? I will not go into the deep past, you can clearly look at b. Yugoslavia, Iraq where the "civilizers" used practically everything, up to the destruction of the civilian population.

        Human rights defenders, some UN departments

        now all human rights activists graze around Belarus, they have no time for Palestine or Lebanon. Bruises on the backs of the protesters are much more important than the use of phosphorus munitions

          Here, about that conversation. I don’t know why our Foreign Ministry didn’t react to the words of the Yankee ambassador, that "the Russian people must be punished."

            newbie .....I don’t know why our Foreign Ministry didn’t react to the words of the Yankee ambassador, that "the Russian people must be punished."

            Our Foreign Ministry has not been catching mice lately. No harsh statements, no "mirror answers". Some kind of incomprehensible muttering, mainly with the lips of Zakharova. negative

      I wonder if the UN will open its mouth against Israel?

      It will not open ... it will be regarded as anti-Semitism ... but Russophobia is encouraged ... here in the UN you can open your mouth as wide as possible.

    Conventional flares. In 90% of cases, they completely burn out in the air, while slowly descending by parachute. With a defect in the parachute or with a sharp gust of wind down, they reach the ground unburned. And they can cause a forest fire.
    Because of them, we have had small forest fires during exercises.

        Exactly, firemen.
        I myself once set up a fire with tracers from a machine gun (turret) during an exercise. Dry grass caught fire, then bushes.
        The commander had to call a fire truck. Extinguished. I was not scolded - I fired according to orders.

    IDF helicopters attacked Hezbollah targets on Wednesday night, August 26, in response to terrorist gunfire towards an Israeli position on the border with southern Lebanon.

There were no casualties on the Israeli side."
