Israel probably violated the terms of its arms deals with Washington by using American-made cluster bombs in Lebanon last year, a US government report says.
The State Department probed Israel's use of cluster bombs in civilian areas of southern Lebanon during the 34-day conflict with Hezbollah.
US-made weapons are sold to the Israeli military with restriction on their use.
Cluster bombs can scatter hundreds of small bomblets over a wide area, and their use has been widely criticised.
The US government has now sent a preliminary report on its investigation into the matter to the US Congress.
