Russia Accuses US Of Using Phosphorus Bombs In Syria’s Deir Ezzor Province. Pentagon Denies

The US Air Force used phosphorous bombs to deliver a strike on the settlement of the ISIS-held village of Hajin in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor on September 8, chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties Vladimir Savchenko said on September 10.

“On September 8, 2018, two F-15 warplanes of the US air force delivered airstrikes on the settlement of Hajin with the use of phosphorous bombs. The airstrikes caused heavy fires. Information about casualties and damages is being verified,” Savchenko stated adding adding that the use of munitions containing yellow phosphorus is prohibited by an additional protocol to the Geneva Convention of 1949.

Pentagon spokesman Commander Sean Robertson commented on this statement claiming that the US Department of Defense has no information about the use of phosphorous bombs in Deir Ezzor province.

“None of the military units in the area are even equipped with white phosphorous munitions of any kind,” he told the Russian news agency TASS.

Last weekend, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) stated that the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are making final preparations to kick off a long-awated offensive on the ISIS-held pocket of Haijn in the Euphrates Valley. The report came amid an increased number of aistrikes by the US-led coalition on ISIS targets in the area.

      No, I (Trump) bombed her with phosphorus (it’s better than sex).

    UK and US have kept white Helmits and SHRW illegally in Syria to do fake chemical attacks and make Hollywood fake videos in war torn country. If Russia have done this then UK and US would order them to leave the areas for up coming operation. Your stay here is now illegal due to operation starwars. We cannot guaranty your safety.

    When dealing with the MSM you’d better well have solid evidence. Unless Russia has video evidence of these bombs exploding they might as well not bother. Nobody will pay attention to whatever Russia says otherwise.

        Nah. I saw the Goedenmorgen Nederland news show this morning and the talking heads were still going like yeah, but it is a murky show, and the Americans made us do it, and our intentions were good. Meanwhile the news scrolling by at the bottom said that the Netherlands had supplied equipment to the ‘Syrian Armed Forces’. I kid you not!

        This will just be another storm in a tea cup. If only because the governing coalition parties will NEVER do anything that will bring down the government. They didn’t over the non-politically correct remarks of Stef Blok, not over giving those tax breaks to big corporations at the tax payer’s expense, nor over those two Armenian kids. A storm in a tea cup. One day of the prime minister answering questions with his usual I don’t remember it that way, then he’ll smile and its business as usual again. Hell, if Stef Blok’s remarks could not bring down the government, as that had the politically correct classes up in arms, then this will certainly not. Because the left only gets up in arms over bad remarks and poor refugees and the right will not bring down its own government.

          It will be the Growing percentage of Dutch People that will be very angry that matters…Awareness..75% of the People are lost anyway too Dumb….a Government That is a bunch of Criminals will have a hard time… these Men are Traitors and War Criminals… Nothing Less…

      True, pity there is no news outlets in America, they have all turned to fiction.

        The russian intervention in Syria means: you are f*uk…as hitler and the nazis, so, scream as you can while you can.

    • jorge

      Barba, lets learn russian, and chinese (han), or nobody will pay you attention (dogs and anglosaxons don’t count).

  • IMHO

    That’s ok. The U.N. Security counsel says that the U.S. can do what it wants to do regardless of international law.

  • Carol Davidek-Waller

    The Pentagon denied the use of phosphorus in Iraq. That didn’t stop it from being true.

    • Bill Wilson

      Just like the rest of the nonsense Russia babbles about.

      • as

        Allow the Russian run test on the sites the same way they allow it in theirs. Simple.

      • jorge

        Bill zombie, a good night for you.

        How much do you believe in Russian statements? In what percentage are their statements completely inaccurate or have incomplete information that gives the wrong picture. And what is the quality of the American statements? Compare and see what you can accept as a correct source of information.
        Of course, if you can move on the side the hatred towards the Russians that comes out of your statement.

  • Tommy Jensen

    You cant prove it.

    • Sinbad2

      The US bombed a hospital in Afghanistan, and denied it, even though there were witnesses and video. The US then bulldozed the sight to try and hide the evidence.
      I could write page after page of provable crimes committed by the USA, and the USA has lied every single time.

      Why would anyone believe American lies?
      PS “You can’t prove it” is a common refrain of the guilty.

  • Sinbad2

    The OCPW should do an immediate investigation, or will the US prevent access to the site, the way they did with MH17?

  • Bobby Twoshoes

    It’s possible they’ve already used all their phosphorous on Mosul and Raqqah… Then again they would want to get rid of the evidence before their puppets fall if there were some leftovers.

    Thank you Franklin Wisman, for sending me the link to this interesting article. Nice analysis of US/Russian Military Power. Well worth reading, especially, those with an interst in military matters.

    ‘They did not listen to us then. They will listen to us now’ President Putin 1 March 2018

    ‘… The Day U.S. Military Supremacy Publicly Ended
    By Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD September 3, 2018…’

    ‘…“Any use of nuclear weapons against Russia or its allies, weapons of short, medium or any range at all, will be considered as a nuclear attack on this country. Retaliation will be immediate, with all the attendant consequences. There should be no doubt about this whatsoever.” President Putin

    … U.S. Response to Russia Possessing Hypersonic Weapons

    On March 20 General John Hyten, Commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, reported to the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services: “We don’t have any defense that could deny the employment of such weapons against us…” He is referring here to hypersonic weapons.

    Senator James Inhofe, the senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee acknowledged: “Right now we’re helpless.”

    General Hyten went on to say: “…so our response would be our deterrent force, which would be the triad and the nuclear capabilities that we have to respond to such a threat.”

    (The nuclear “triad” is sea-based submarine launched ballistic missiles, land-based ICBMs, and air-borne nuclear-armed bombers.)

    What if the next time the U.S. military fires Tomahawk missiles at targets in Syria, or Iran, Russia responds by not only shooting down the missiles but, as it has threatened to do, also destroys their source of origin. A Kinzhal hypersonic missile armed with a conventional weapon strikes and sinks the aircraft carrier from which the missile-carrying planes took off. Would America really respond to the sinking of one of its aircraft carriers by starting a first-strike nuclear war?

    Aircraft carriers are sitting ducks. They are defenseless against hypersonic weapons. Attacking and sinking a U.S. carrier with a hypersonic missile anywhere on the planet gives Russia what analysts call escalation dominance, which the United States cannot counter in kind. There aren’t any Russian targets with an actual and symbolic value like a U.S. aircraft carrier with its 85 jet fighters and 3,000 crew members…

    … Air Force General Robert Latiff, in his book Future War: Preparing for the New Global Battlefield, published in 2017 writes:

    “War and technology have defined our history. Americans spend vast sums on weapons and aggressively export our weapons to others. We assume our technological superiority, an assumption that is increasingly challenged and that has potentially dangerous consequences if we think it will allow us to impose our will on others.… Make no mistake: the willful ignorance of the American public and its leaders will have dangerous consequences.”…
