Avi Bell asserts on NGO Monitor’s Web site. - “used this weapon primarily during the last stages of fighting, when nearly all civilians had fled southern Lebanon.”

Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev - "Our understanding is that the use of these weapons was done within the framework of self-defense in dealing with rockets designed to kill Israeli citizens."[1]

  • Kathleen Peratis. "Back Bill To Ban Cluster Bombs". The Jewish Daily Forward. Mar 23, 2007 - "It is true that many civilians fled, but many, unable to flee for a variety of reasons, stayed put. They, along with the returnees, found their fields, gardens and roads littered with unexploded bomblets, which have so far killed at least 30 civilians and injured nearly 200, according to the U.N.’s Mine Action Coordination Center. (Hezbollah fired more than 100 Chinese-produced cluster munitions into northern Israel; to date, there are no reported casualties.)"
