Pictures: Mine and Explosive Ordinance Clearing in Lebanon

I found these pictures on the website of a really great organisation involved in mine clearing activities across the world. The organisation goes by the name of the Mines Advisory Group, is based in the UK, and is a co-laureate of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize. Here is their website where you can click to find out more about their activities, ways to help, and possible employment with the group, they also have a larger selection of pictures along with captions and stories to go with them so its definitely worth a visit.
If you're interested in donating to the group's activities in Lebanon, then please check out the link in our Help Lebanon section (sidebar).

  1. Impressive.

    But the real problem is not those impressive bombs, it's the thousands of unexploded submunitions.

  2. Yeah you're right, pictures of unexploded submunitions clearance efforts can be found on the MAG site.

    I think the pictures would be just as convincing without the children posing next to the shells.

    Using children in this context is propaganda. We've witnessed enough disrespect for the Qana-children.

    sorry.

  4. The only thing I disagree with in your statement is the sorry.

    No need to apologize.

    Of course...stopping the death of children would probably be a better solution that stopping the airing of pictures of their deaths...poor little fellers

    :(

    Hi blacksmith jade,

    the sorry wasn't meant for my posting but for the children.

    I fear the death of the children is related to the airing the pictures of their dead bodies. If we wouldn't care, there would be less dead children.

    Hezbollah actually had announced the dead children:
    A nation with child martyrs will be victorious, no matter what difficulties lie in its path.
