War-related birth defects in Fallujah


www.presstv.ir

Families in Fallujah are calling for an investigation into the rise of birth defects after the US used phosphorus over the Iraqi city in 2004.

They have raised concerns about the weapons used by American forces in 2004, including constant bombardment with uranium depleted artillery shells and other depleted uranium ammunition- when Fallujah suffered the heaviest blitze following the overthrow of the Saddam regime of the entire war in Iraq.

Hikmat Tawfeeq, deputy chairman of the Fallujah-based human rights group Al-akhiyar said: "We have around 200 cases of deformities recorded by our society. Most of these cases are birth deformities which have arisen after the bombing of Fallujah."

The people of Fallujah continue to suffer, 4 years after the city was levelled by US forces in the infamous battle for fallujah.

Using phosphorous and DU in civilian area's is nothing short of unforgiveable, and points to a total disregard for the Iraqi civilian population.

In the additional news links, you can see the 2 sides of the story.

The DOD spin, and the reality of what happened to hundreds of innocent people according to more neutral reports, and continues to happen as these birth defects are reported.

Please be aware that some of the pictures are graphic, and upsetting.
