Originally applied to any group of infantry primarily armed with projectile weapons, artillery has over time become limited in meaning to refer only to those engines of war that operate by projection of munitions far beyond the range of effect of personal weapons. These engines comprise specialised devices which use some form of stored energy to operate, whether mechanical, chemical, or electromagnetic. Originally designed to breach fortifications, they have evolved from nearly static installations intended to reduce a single obstacle to highly mobile weapons of great flexibility in which now reposes the greater portion of a modern army's offensive capabilities.

Those are phosphorous munitions. This is sickening.

Can anyone prove to me that this is Israeli artillery? I'm vouching that this is in Libya actually.

Oh man you got to be kidding me, I just wrote a reply and then did the shortcut for closing the tab by accident!!!!

Anyway here's a summary of what my comment said. Phosphorous is an inexcusable weapon but it is still in extensive use today (reports of the US having used it in Iraq/Afghanistan). There could quite possibly be a military target under that barrage, rather hard to tell exactly what is going on there.

Again I am not excusing the use of phosphorous in any situation.

Since when you can justify an error with another ?
As a so called "non-terrorist" country, Israel should serve as an true EXAMPLE.
If they are firing on civilians, DO NOT fire at civilians. Otherwise, this will happen. (I know it is an old post)

A little hard to have any regard for civilians when your cities are being bombed indiscriminately day in day out by Hamas rocket and mortar positions with no abate. And then getting internationally pressured to just "leave them alone" because some Israeli munitions end up killing civilians in a dense urban area, why? Because those mortar and rocket positions are set up around schools and medical facilities specifically to attract international attention when Israel retaliates.
Sickening thing is that half the people here believe the media crap about the poor defenceless Palestinians.

I'm not saying that the attacks are not true. I am saying that Israel as a "major" power, should be an example. I refuse to discuss this, since Moddb doesn't like anything that looks like anti-semitic, they only anti-palestinian stuff.

Somehow I don't think ModDB is biased to Semitism.

In modern warfare, no matter who wins, the civilian loses.
