The Effect Of Cluster Munition On Cars & Concrete

This video shows the effect cluster munition has on cars & concrete very well in high definition.

The footage was firstly released in October 2020 during an Azerbaijani cluster montions attack on a residential area in the town of Stepanakert, Nagoro-Karabagh.

Luckily it seems the no person was directly openly exposed to the cluster munitions impact. While the concrete was mostly unscathed all the cars got heavily pierced by the small detonations and shrapnels.

cluster munition is a form of air-dropped or ground-launched explosive weapon that releases or ejects smaller submunitions. Commonly, this is a cluster bomb that ejects explosive bomblets that are designed to kill personnel and destroy vehicles. Other cluster munitions are designed to destroy runways or electric power transmission lines, disperse chemical or biological weapons, or to scatter land mines. Some submunition-based weapons can disperse non-munitions, such as leaflets.

Because cluster bombs release many small bomblets over a wide area, they pose risks to civilians both during attacks and afterwards. Unexploded bomblets can kill or maim civilians and/or unintended targets long after a conflict has ended, and are costly to locate and remove.

Cluster munitions are prohibited for those nations that ratified the Convention on Cluster Munitions, adopted in Dublin, Ireland in May 2008. The Convention entered into force and became binding international law upon ratifying states on 1 August 2010, six months after being ratified by 30 states. As of 1 April 2018, a total of 120 states have joined the Convention, as 103 states parties and 17 signatories.
