Israel’s Use of Weapons

“In Lebanon, we covered entire villages with cluster bombs, what we did there was crazy and monstrous,” according to a commander in the Israel Defense Forces’ MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) unit. Haaretz has published an article about the weapons used by Israel in the invasion of Lebanon, such as phosphorus and cluster bombs.

According to the article, commanders solved the problem of the inaccuracy of the cluster rockets by “flooding” the target area with them. When the IDF trains with these weapons, they rarely use live rockets, because there are so many “duds” that end up as mines, and they obviously didn’t want their training grounds covered with such dangers.

Also, Israeli soldiers report that they used phosphorus shells in Lebanon. Phosphorus causes painful death and severe burns.
