The farming district of Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel filed a complaint on Monday over two Palestinian mortar shells fired at it from Gaza which were found to contain phosphorous.
The complaint, filed to UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon, noted that the Geneva Convention banned the use of phosphorous in weapons directed at civilians.
The rural region, filled with farms and villages, has been the target of years-long Palestinian rocket and mortar attacks.
The phosphorous shells fired on Sunday landed in open fields, and did not cause injuries or damages.
