Britain’s Observer Issues Correction: Israel Did Not Use Chemical Weapons in Gaza

2

 gazaThe Observer in Britain issued a correction on Sunday after equating Israel’s use of white phosphorous in Gaza to Syrian President Assad’s use of chemical weapons.

“Contrary to the impression given… white phosphorus, used by Israeli forces in Gaza in 2008, is not a chemical weapon as understood by the Chemical Weapons Convention, and its use is in itself not ‘in breach of all international conventions.'”

The spokesman for the Israeli Embassy in London, Yiftah Curiel, had asked for the correction, calling the request “an example of zero tolerance for disinformation.”
