Russia calls on UN to discuss use of phosphorus bombs by US-led coalition in Syria

Moscow, SANA – Deputy Speaker of the Russian State Duma Irina Yarovaya said that the United Nations should have discussions about the use of phosphorus bombs by the US-led coalition in Syria.

On Thursday night, the warplanes of the US-led coalition shelled the building of the National Hospital in Raqqa City with phosphorus bombs. Earlier on June 9th, the coalition targeted with the internationally banned white phosphorus bombs the western parts of Raqqa city and the area between al-Mashlab and al-Sinaa neighborhoods, in addition to al-Sabahi neighborhood, claiming the lives of 17 people.

“It is time to conduct post-flight analysis both in literal and figurative meanings and work out whether it was either total incompetence and criminal negligence or a disguised intention to destroy those who are not terrorists,” she said.

She added that another air strike of the coalition’s warplanes on a civilian facility raises a question “how long will the coalition help terrorists to bomb and destroy Syria?”

“There is too much deceit about errors behind which there are crimes,” she said.
