Israel uses illegal US-supplied weapons against Palestinians: Duff

Press TV has conducted an interview with Gordon Duff, senior editor with Veterans Today from Ohio, about Israeli forces using poisonous gas against people in Gaza Strip.

What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Why is there no accountability for Israel’s use of internationally banned weapons, weapons such as DIME (Dense Inert Metal Explosive) and this new toxic material that’s being used?

Duff: We don’t have any specific analysis on the toxic material but we know that the Israelis were very active with South Africa during the 70s and 80s, developing such gases as Sarin, DX and BZ. Israel does have stockpiles of those gases. We know that gases have been moved in and out of Syria and that have been used by the al-Nusra and ISIS forces who are allied to Israel and Israel using those same weapons is no surprise to any of us.

Press TV: If it weren’t for the support of the US and several other Western countries, for how long do you think Israel could exist and continue to commit such atrocities?

Duff: This is one of the shames of the American relationship with Israel. We are supplying them with an infinite number of chemical weapons. We are certainly giving them quite white phosphorous bombs which have burnt many Palestinian children. We are giving them illegal cluster munitions. They are using those as well. We are giving them depleted uranium munitions. They are using those and of course frankly they have been poisoning a number of Israelis as well with those weapons.

So, the Unites States is underwriting and paying for all of this and this is clearly a violation of any number of provisions within the Geneva Conventions and the United States should very well be held accountable.
