Tit for Tat

Just moments after I published my previous posting, which mentions Israel's use of white phosphorous munitions, I came across this on ynet:

One of the mortar shells fired from northern Gaza at the Eshkol Regional Council Tuesday contained white phosphorus.

The council's security chief, Nikki Levy, said that "the potential danger of using such a rocket is enormous. It is far more dangerous than other Qassam rockets and mortal shells. This is an escalation in the type of explosives the Palestinians use on civilians."

This is indeed bad news. But an escalation ! Israel has been using white phosphorous in Gaza since at least Jan 3.
