Two US Air Force F-15 aircraft carried out strikes with banned phosphorus shells on the settlement of Hadjin in Deir ez-Zor province, Syria on 8 Sept, 2018.
According to Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation, major fires were observed after the strike and no report on casualties.
A Pentagon spokesman Commander Sean Robertson denied the claim and said “At this time, we have not received any reports of any use of white phosphorous,… None of the military units in the area are even equipped with white phosphorous munitions of any kind.”
But the Human rights groups have said the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State has used white phosphorous munitions over the course of the Syria conflict.
“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.” reported sputnik news.
