The Israeli government has refused to provide the United Nations assurance to discontinue its illegal usage of internationally banned white phosphorus bombs,
which it used heavily in its latest war on the Gaza Strip,
causing hundreds of Palestinian deaths,
in addition to serious environmental damage.
Israel submitted an official report to the UN this week admitting its use of white phosphorus bombs in its war on Gaza
after having previously denied such allegations,
and assuring that it would use the bombs in a “restricted” manner,
but refusing to assure complete discontinuation.
