3 Years Later~Israel FINALLY Complies to ONE UN Resolution

Ok Israel threw out a carrot, now lets all wait for the stick. During the 2006 Lebanon war, Israel dropped hundreds of cluster bombs on Lebanon. After the war was over it refused to hand over maps showing where these cluster bombs were. Hence more innocent people have died and Israel once again refused to comply with the UN's request regarding the maps for the last three years. I guess Israel figures they may still get lucky and kill off a few more innocent Arabs who might accidently step on one of these bombs. Finally and suddenly, three years later they have given over the maps. I only hope they are the real maps and are accurate. Can't say I trust Israel very much as they do have a tendancy to lie, cheat and steal. Report below:
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Israel handed over to U.N. peacekeepers Tuesday maps of where it dropped cluster bombs in Lebanon during the 2006 war with Hezbollah guerrillas, the UNIFIL peacekeeping force said.

The United Nations and the Lebanese government have repeatedly called on Israel to hand over the maps of where it dropped the munitions, most of which were fired in the last 72 hours of the 34-day war.

A U.N. Security Council resolution which halted the war called on Israel to give the United Nations all remaining maps showing land mine sites in Lebanon.

"These maps and locations should have been handed over immediately after the issuance of the international resolution," Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said in a statement. link
