Videos on Israel's use of Cluster Bombs
The summer of 2006 Israel left a deadly legacy in South Lebanon. Approximately, 4 million cluster bombs were dropped on Lebanon in the July 2006 war, of which around 1 million did not explode on impact. Most of these bombs were dropped in the last 72 hours of the war. To date, after 10 months, the battle area clearance organisations have disposed of a total of 118,000 cluster bombs.
As of June 2007, 905 strike areas have been located in all, covering an estimated 36 million sqm.
Clearing 100 sqm takes 10 battle area clearance operatives between 30 and 60 minutes.
Since the war ended on the 13th of August 2006 until the 7th of June 2007, 239 people have been injured or killed by unexploded ordnance, the vast majority by cluster bombs.
Cluster bombs are delivered in dispensers by aircrafts and rockets or in artillery shells. Each cluster bomb dispenser can contain up to 650 cluster bombs.
When dispersed from an aircraft or a rocket the cluster bombs
will spread across an area app. 400 meters long and 200 meters wide
equalling 80,000 square meters.
