Over four million cluster munitions was dropped over Lebanon
Israel has handed over details of where it dropped cluster bombs in Lebanon during the war in 2006, UN peacekeeping forces have confirmed.
The UN says Israel used some four million cluster bomblets on Lebanon, of which about a quarter did not explode.
The data will be assessed and then passed on to the Lebanese army.
The UN has repeatedly called on Israel to provide information to help speed up the clearance operation and prevent further casualties among civilians.
Most of the cluster bomblets were fired
in the last 72 hours
of the 33-day war with Hezbollah militants in Lebanon in July and August 2006.
According to the UN Mine Action Coordination Centre, about 300 civilians have since been killed or maimed by left-over munitions.
The majority of the victims were children, often from rural areas in south Lebanon, who had used the bomblets as toys.
Although cluster bombs are not illegal under the laws of war, campaigners say their use in populated areas constitutes an indiscriminate attack on civilians.
In a statement the Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora confirmed that he had received a call from the Unfil commander General Claudio Graziano who informed him about the details Israel had provided.
Mr Siniora said the maps and locations should have been handed over immediately after the end of
hostilities in 2006.
