    Background: VICTIMS OF NAPALM BURNS - ALLEGED BY JORDAN TO HAVE BEEN INFLICTED BY ISRAELI FORCES - ARE BEING TREATED IN THE RED CROSS MILITARY HOSPITAL IN AMMAN, JORDAN.

    ACCORDING TO JORDANIAN OFFICIALS THE PATIENTS IN THE RED CROSS HOSPITAL WERE BURNED BY NAPALM DURING THE ISRAELI ATTACKS ON JORDAN. SCORES OF PATIENTS HAVE BEEN ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL FOR TREATMENT.

    THE HOSPITAL TREATMENT IS ONE OF SEVERAL ASPECTS OF RED CROSS SAID ACTIVITY IN JORDAN. THOUSANDS OF REFUGEES IN JORDAN HAVE BEEN GIVEN SUPPLIES AND NEW EQUIPMENT BY RED CROSS PERSONNEL BASED IN THE COUNTRY.

    MEDICAL SUPPLIES FOR THE RED CROSS MILITARY HAVE BEEN FLOWN IN FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD. MEDICAL TEAMS HAVE ALSO BEEN IMPORTED TO HELP WITH THE PROBLEM.

    NAPALM IS A HIGHLY INFLAMMABLE MATERIAL WHICH CAN EXPLODES AND BURSTS INTO FLAMES WHEN IT COMES IN CONTACT WITH THE SKIN. IT BURNS DEEPLY, AND CALLS FOR EXTENSIVE MEDICAL TREATMENT. THE NAPALM BOMBS ALLEGEDLY USED BY THE ISRAELIS ARE SIMILAR TO THE MAGNESIUM BOMBS USED DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR.
