Consequence of Israel pre-emptive war on Lebanon in June 2006

War … so short but the amount of damage done especially the effects of cluster bombs. Ignorance has culpability. Nothing really changes with the Military Industrial Complex but this quote shows how so many countries are implicated in each of the many wars still going on. “Israel dropped million of cluster bombs delivered to it from Scottish manufacturers and weapon reserved by order of Blair PM. 13 years later, many civilians are killed or handicapped from these cluster bombs.”

Consequence of Israel pre-emptive war on Lebanon in June 2006

Israel launched a pre-emptive war on Lebanon in 2006 that lasted 33 days. Monstrous infrastructure devastation ensued that cost Lebanon $15 bn.

2,000 Lebanese died and four fold were injured and handicapped. Israel lost thousands of its soldiers, on land and on sea, and a third of Israel population were incarcerated in shelters for the duration.

Supposedly, Israel was attacking Hezbollah, but every region in Lebanon was hit with fighter jets bombs and missiles. In the last day of the ceasefire, Israel dropped million of cluster bombs delivered to it from Scottish manufacturers and weapon reserved by order of Blair PM. 13 years later, many civilians are killed or handicapped from these cluster bombs.

1,5 million Lebanese civilians took refuge inside Lebanon or in Syria and 200,000 left to overseas  countries to start a new life.
