The Government of Lebanon (GoL) Higher Relief Council (HRC
) reports the casualty figures at 1,187 killed and 4,061 injured. Most of the recent casualties have been caused by UXO
s. As of 28 August, 359 individual cluster bomb strike locations have been confirmed and recorded. Given that areas of lower priority and a number of villages with IDF
presence nearby have yet to be visited, it is estimated the total number of strikes could be in excess of 400. Un-exploded bombs (UXB
) dropped by aircraft and ranging from 500lb to 2000lb, continue to be located. Many large, aircraft bombs lie un-exploded in people’s houses and gardens.
