The Syrian regime’s forces have reportedly used the internationally-banned phosphorus bombs in their campaign against the rebel-held Idlib province, activists said on Monday.
“Pro-Assad warplanes dropped white phosphorus on the town of Saraqeb in Idlib province,” local media activist Sulaiman Maarawi told ARA News.
“The attack caused several casualties among civilians,” he said.
Medical sources in the targeted town also confirmed the army’s use of phosphorus bombs, amid reports of suffocation cases.
Also, activists shared a video on social media showing warplanes dropping what looks like white phosphorus on Saraqeb.
