UN Says Israel Violated International Law

The U.N. envoy for children says that Israel’s actions last summer violated international law, according to USAToday. She said that this would be discussed on her trip to the Middle East, and that she would also press for locations of cluster bombs dropped in southern Lebanon toward the end of the war.

1200 Lebanese were killed during the war. Another 29 were killed and 215 injured afterwards by unexploded cluster bombs. The bombing of infrastructure is costing 2.8 billion USD in repairs.
