Just when you think the crazy cluster bombing bastards can’t get any worse, now we find that they dropped white phoshorus bombs on Lebanon, like the U.S. did on Fallujah.
White phosphorus bombs are not supposed to be used against human targets.
WP (Wiley Pete is another nick-name) is used by armies for producing smoke screens and as an incendiary. The phosphorus ignites on contact with air and gives off a thick smoke. If the chemical touches skin it will continue to burn until it reaches the bone unless deprived of oxygen.
