Cluster bomb use in Lebanon

Originally published 9/13/06:

More from the Haaretz on the use of cluster bombs and phosphorous weapons in Lebanon yesterday.  This soldier says they literally dumped 1.2 million cluster bomblets on Lebanon.  If previous estimates are correct, 90% of that was done in the final 2 or 3 days when both sides knew the exact time of the end of the conflict.  This effectively turns civilian areas into a very dangerous land mine flooded area.  So far, there have been more than 10 civilians killed in Lebanon due to these dangerous bomblets, and there will doubtless be alot more.
