Toxic uranium admission: Pentagon confirms to RT use of depleted uranium in Syria

More than 5,000 rounds of depleted uranium (DU) ammunition were used in two attacks on Islamic State oil tankers in eastern Syria, the US military has confirmed. More specifically, A-10 ground attack aircraft used armor-piercing DU rounds for their 30mm rotating cannons.
The US-led coalition previously pledged it would not use the controversial ordnance.
