ANOTHER WAR: CLUSTER BOMBS IN LEBANON
By Gabriela Bulisova
This series of photographs was created in Lebanon between August and December 2006, immediately after a ceasefire ended the 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah. Following the war, it is estimated that 1.2 million unexploded cluster bombs were left behind, terrorizing civilian neighborhoods.
The images were captured in many of the towns and villages where cluster bombs were discovered, often causing death or severe injuries to civilians. By the end of 2006, more than 170 people had been killed or maimed. Many were only identified by sex and age. It is my fervent hope that these images will help convince the entire world to do away with this particularly ruthless and cruel form of munitions.
