Hamas fired phosphorous bombs into Israel

Police investigation showed that one of the mortar bombs fired at Hof Ashkelon council contained phosphorus.

The Israeli air force used white phosphorus in Gaza against Hamas soldiers. Now, Hamas has used phosphorus bombs into Southern Israel.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman instructed Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations Meron Reuven on Friday to file a complaint regarding the phosphorous bombs fired from Gaza into Israel.

Following the barrage of mortar bombs and rockets fired from Gaza into the western Negev to which the IDF responded with an air strike on Friday, Lieberman told Reuven to file a complaint to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and to the UN Security Council.

“This is another reminder to the international community that Israel’s southern residents are forced to live in constant fear in the face of relentless terror under the patronage of the Hamas regime in Gaza,” said Lieberman.

The IDF attacked three targets in the Gaza Strip on Friday after Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip fired a long-range Grad rocket and seven mortar shells at western Negev, following a night-long barrage of Qassam rockets fired from the coastal enclave.
