Abstract: Israel fired artillery shells containing white phosphorus in its recent conflict with Hizbollah militants in the Lebanon, according to an official investigation by the United Nations.
White phosphorus is banned under the Geneva Convention when used against civilians or in civilian areas, although Israel insists that the shells were directed against solely military targets.
Following the end of the hostilities, Amnesty International delegates again visited both countries for further research and discussions with officials. As a result, the organization issued two publications covering some aspects of the conflict. In August it published Israel/Lebanon: Deliberate destruction or “collateral damage”? Israeli attacks against civilian infrastructure.
This report in Italian is entitled "Israel/Lebanon: Deliberate
destruction or “collateral damage”?" ("Israele/Libano: Deliberata
distruzione o danni collaterali?")
Abstract: The Council should take the initiative to promote urgent action to
include cluster munitions to the list of weapons banned under
international law. The Council should request the relevant
international bodies, including the Meetings of States Parties to the
Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain
Conventional Weapons Which May Be Deemed to Be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects and to the Convention on the Prohibition
of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel
