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.
