Human rights groups say Israel is indiscriminately using white phosphorus in Gaza's densely populated areas.
When ignited, the chemical can burn the flesh off of a person, down to the bone.
Israel says the use of white phosphorus is permitted under international law, although it hasn't openly admitted using the chemical.
Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Gaza City.
