Military units in the area have no such ammunition, Pentagon spokesman Sean Robertson said, writes Meduza.

“By this time, we had not received any reports on the use of white phosphorus. None of the military units in the area is even equipped with white phosphorous ammunition, ”said Robertson.

Data on the number of dead and injured are specified. The ministry stressed that the use of this type of weapon is prohibited by the Geneva Convention. In 2017, the US-led coalition, in response to media accusations of using white phosphorus, said it was acting "in accordance with the laws of war."

The Russian Defense Ministry claimed that on September 8, two US Air Force fighters had dropped phosphorus incendiary ammunition on the city of Hadjin in the province of Deir ez-Zor. Because of the strikes in the area there have been strong fires, said the head of the Russian Center for reconciliation of the warring parties in Syria, Lieutenant-General Vladimir Savchenko. How many people died and suffered, it was not specified.

White phosphorus ammunition is prohibited by the Additional Protocol to the Geneva 1949 Convention of the Year.
Earlier, the White House warned of readiness to strike at Syria, if the troops of Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons in Idlib. The Russian Defense Ministry believes that Idlib is preparing a provocation using chemical weapons to provoke a US missile strike.
The province of Idlib is the last significant territory in Syria under the control of the armed opposition.
