Thank you Israel for dropping cluster bombs all over civilian areas of Lebanon which NZ soldiers are now having to risk their lives every day to find and detonate. Oh and thank you for doing it illegally now as well. I wonder where all those voices who acted as apologists of this war for Israel have all quietly disappeared to?
Israel 'broke US arms deal terms'
Israel probably violated the terms of its arms deals with Washington by using US-made cluster bombs in Lebanon last year, a US government report says.
The state department looked into Israel's use of cluster bombs in civilian areas of southern Lebanon during its conflict with Hezbollah. US-made weapons are sold to the Israeli military with restriction on their use. Cluster bombs can scatter hundreds of small bomblets over a wide area, and their use has been widely criticised. The International Committee of the Red Cross called for a ban on the use of cluster bombs in populated areas, because of the indiscriminate civilian deaths they caused. Amnesty International has criticised Israel for its use of cluster bombs in the final days of the conflict.
