No we don't... yes we did

Well done again the Times for keeping on about Israel's use of white phosphorus. Today the paper reports what seems to be an admission from the Israel Defence Forces that media coverage of the issue led them to stop using the very dangerous chemical.

The Times says that the IDF provided "its first explicit admission" on this issue although it does not make this entirely clear. It appears that the IDF is for the first time admitting that it used two different type of phosphorus shell, having previously denied using it at all.
