Israel attacks UN aid compound White Phosphorous Shells


UNRWA spokesman Johan Eriksson told the British Broadcasting Corp. via phone from Jerusalem that he had just spoken to the agency’s boss in Gaza City, who confirmed to him that at least three shells containing white phosphorus hit their sprawling compound.

“Fire is raging inside our compound. It is inside a mechanical workshop,” Eriksson told the BBC, adding that shipping pallets loaded with humanitarian aid were also on fire inside the compound.

“Firefighters cannot do anything. White phosphorus has landed and these fires cannot be put out,” said Eriksson. “Three people inside the compound are injured so far.”
