Egypt has accused Sinai application on cluster munitions

Egypt’s armed forces has come under fire after the army’s press service has published a video of loading munitions on aircraft involved in operation «Sinai 2018».

As it turned out, we are talking about cluster munitions CBU-87, each of the cassettes containing 202 bomb BLU-97B. The use of cluster munitions prohibited the Dublin Convention in 2008, which Egypt has not signed – as well as the US, Russia, Israel and dozens of other countries.

«Cluster bombs – weapons that threatened civilians years after the end of hostilities. The fact that the Egyptian army uses them, demonstrates contempt for human lives», — said the representative of Amnesty International, Nadia Benaim.

The human rights organization also urged the U.S. to stop supplying arms to Egypt under international conventions.
