A specialist institute which works together with several other professional labs in Europe, has revealed an abnormal presence of the white phosphorous on a sample of the skin of a Kurdish fighter, who was wounded in the Turkish attack on the town of Sere-Kaniye (Ras Al-Ain), north-eastern Syria.
Al-Nahar newspaper in a report published today indicated that the Autonomous Administration of north-eastern Syria has presented on Monday the analyzes of the specialist institute in Paris, confirming the Turkish military used phosphorous bombs in their cross-border military attack on north-eastern Syria, last October.
The report concluded: "The type of injury (chemical burns), in addition to the very high amount of phosphorous in the sample, proves that phosphorous (white phosphorous munitions) was used," according to al-Nahar newspaper.
The newspaper pointed out that doctor Abbas Mansouran, who treated the victims of the Turkish bombardment, confirmed that some of the unusual burns are due to the use of unconventional weapons.
Dr. Abbas also confirmed during a press conference in Paris, along with the spokesperson for the People's Protection Units YPG, Nuri Mahmoud and the representative of the Autonomous Administration of north-eastern Syria, Khaled Issa, that "the injuries and symptoms that appeared on the victims, most of them were civilians, are consistent with exposure to chemical weapons."
The Autonomous Administration of north-eastern Syria had accused Turkey of using internationally prohibited weapons such as napalm and white phosphorous in its military invasion in Ras al-Ain, the administration called for opening "an international and official investigation into these violations."
The Autonomous Administration confirmed that Turkey targeted more than 30 unarmed civilians, including children, with these internationally prohibited weapons.
