Flechettes are commonly used, not an Israeli exclusive. Not an excuse, just a plain simple FACT. In war, either sides uses ANYTHING they have in their arsenal. Again, in war or training, friendly fire accidents do happen. Possibly, you in your expertise can point out any army that hasn't had this type of accident. I would be most interested in knowing who they are. To this very day, when going to a gun show, I've seen examples of bomb shaped flechettes on dealers tables. A flechette is just another name for a odd shaped piece of iron or steel, it will kill or main as readily as a bullet. Do you really think that the person it hits cares if the impact is from a nice evenly shaped piece of metal like a bullet or a jaggeg hunk of iron or steel? The nice round hole isn't painless. Don't foolishly expect Israel to use less than what she has available, she won't.
