Rheinmetall: Production of white phosphorus weapons

Delta Lloyd Asset Management currently prohibits investing in Rheinmetall because of their production of white phosphorus weapons.[1] White phosphorus burns fiercely and can set
cloth, fuel, ammunition, and other combustibles on fire and can cause serious burns or death.
According to an Amnesty International fact-finding mission to southern Israel and Gaza, Israeli forces used white phosphorus and other weapons supplied by the USA, committing out serious violations of international humanitarian law, including war crimes.[2]
