The Israeli court is attempting to exonerate its military for dropping millions of cluster bomblets on Lebanon right at the end of the war in mid 2006. Now it has been reported by British journalist Jonathan Cook, in his article, "Evidence of Israeli "Cowardly Blending" Comes to Light: War Crimes Airbrushed from History," Counterpunch., January 4, 2008, that Israel used Arab communities as human shields against Hezbollah rockets. Hezbollah still targeted the Israelis. Arabs were killed in some instances. The Israeli had deliberately placed a number of military targets near Arab villages.
What is important to note here is that Israel has complained about the Palestinians using their own as human shields.
