Qana Bomb Made in the US

Guardian: Qana Bomb Made in the US

It has been revealed that the bombs used in the attacks Israel launched on the southern Lebanese village of Qana were produced by the US.

At least 60 civilians, most of whom were children had been killed in the attack.

The British newspaper Guardian reported that the bombs used in the attacks were laser-controlled BSU 37/B bunker busters manufactured by the US.

The Independent claimed that inscriptions on shrapnel found at the sight of the attack indicate that the bombs were manufactured by the US.

It also noted that the bombs were tested in the war field.

The same type bomb had been used in last week’s attack that killed four UN observers.

The Bush administration had shipped 2.5 tons, 100 GBU-28 “bunker busters” to the region after the operation began on 12 July.

‘Silence Requires a Heart of Stone!’

The carnage in Qana dominated the world media.

The Guardian, recalling the Qana massacre of 1996 when 105 people were killed, stressed that Israel’s foreign policies have never yielded concrete results and there was no guarantee that their latest policies would be any different.

David Clark, adviser for the Workers Party government, wrote that Israel had openly committed war crimes and that Blair and Bush were being hypocrital by not condeming all forms of terror.

In an article titled, ‘How can we stand by and allow this to go on?’ Robert Fisk, a popular journalist for Independent, writes, “You must have a heart of stone not to feel the outrage.”
