A former soldier in the Israeli army confirmed that he believes what human rights and international organizations have documented about its use White phosphorus In the war waged by Israel against civilians in Gaza strip About three months ago.
The former soldier, “Yuval,” said – in a video clip on his page on the TikTok platform – that “one of the most horrific war crimes committed by Israel historically, and now in this war in particular, is the use of white phosphorus against the residents of Gaza and Lebanon.”
He added, “I was reading the reports of several human rights organizations documenting this. Then I remembered the time when I was serving in the Israeli army and I was in the artillery corps and they were teaching us about the different types of bombs and finally they came to white phosphorus.”
Memories from my time in the IOF
He continued: “At that time they said: Oh!.. This is what this type of bomb does, but we cannot use it because it is prohibited under international law. I remembered then that I was confused and astonished. And I thought and said to myself, OK. Since this type of bomb is internationally prohibited and its use is forbidden.” “By law, why is he here now?! Why is he in every tank we work in?”
He added, “I felt at the time that this was an example of the Israeli contradiction. Israel, which likes to portray itself to the world as the only democracy in the Middle East and that it is the most moral army in the world, but the truth is what we are witnessing on the ground in Gaza and other places.”
Yuval concluded the video clip by saying, “The truth about Israel is represented in the experiences we hear from the Palestinians, and what they are exposed to every day under the brutal and violent Israeli occupation tells us a completely different story. I wish you a happy day and a free Palestine.”
On November 23, Yuval posted a video clip of the Swedish song “Freedom for Palestine” on his page on the TikTok platform.
When an Israeli supporter named “Emily” commented, “Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism. Israel has every right to destroy terrorists in Gaza,” he responded by saying, “Zionism = the ideology that the Jewish people should have a Jewish ethnic state.” Anti-Semitism = ideology Racism against the Jewish people.”
