The hostilities in southern Lebanon in 2006 saw one of the most concentrated deployments of cluster munitions in the last decade. MAG's survey was undertaken between September 2013 and April 2014 and was the first survey of its kind since the hostilities.

With continued international cooperation and commitment, a cluster munition free Lebanon can be a reality

Like the Convention on Cluster Munitions, the report has people at its heart. The findings and recommendations can assist Lebanon in moving closer to its goal of becoming free of cluster munitions.

With continued international cooperation and commitment, a cluster munition free Lebanon can be a reality. It will enable communities to live free from fear and in true safety. There is no reason to delay for a day longer than necessary to achieve this.

The report is the result of cooperation between the Lebanon Mine Action Centre (LMAC) and MAG, with the support of the British Embassy in Beirut.
