Armed Islamist opposition fighters have used yellow phosphorous in a chemical attack on the Sheikh Maqsoud neighborhood in the Syrian city of Aleppo on Tuesday, Kurdish militia group YPG said. Several soldiers were admitted to a hospital. The victims are suffering from itching skin and other symptoms of a chemical poisoning. Phosphorous was banned for use against civilians as it burns skin and bone.
