Amnesty: White phosphorus used in Gaza
"Some of these patients burn for hours. One of the patients, after two hours we opened the wound and noticed smoke came out of the wound!"

Dr Abu Shaban says he removed some of the particles from the wound and when he held them up and they came into contact with the air "a flame came out".

At first, he would treat the wounds as regular burns, washing them with water and saline. But that only made it worse.
