Treaties. Cluster Munitions. Cluster Munitions. Form of air dropped or ground launched explosives that releases smaller ‘ bomblets ’ or ‘mini-munitions’. Designed to destroy runways, buildings, power lines, disperse chemical weapons or even distribute leaflets.
“Because future adversaries will likely use civilian shields for military targets – for example by locating a military target on the roof of an occupied building – use of unitary weapons could result in more civilian casualties and damage than cluster munitions. Blanket elimination of cluster munitions is therefore unacceptable due not only to negative military consequences but also due to potential negative consequences for civilians.”
