The UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon is denying a media report claiming that its investigators found that Israel used cluster bombs against targets there earlier this week in retaliation for a bomb detonated by Hezbollah which injured two IDF soldiers.
According to the English-language Lebanese newspaper The Daily Star
, UNIFIL investigators found that Israel fired two dozen cluster bombs at hills surrounding Kfar Shuba and the Shebaa Farms on Tuesday. The UN force, however, denied reaching such a conclusion.The Daily Star
quoted unnamed investigators from UNIFIL and the Lebanese military who were carrying out inspections along the border region shortly after the incident on Tuesday.
