Posted in Official Publications, Operation Cast Lead, Publications by beyondtheborder on April 6, 2009

In response to continuing rocket attacks into southern Israel, Israel waged the bloodiest war against Gaza since the 1967 war for more than 20 days on December 27, 2008. More than 1200 people were killed and thousands more wounded. Large parts of the infrastructure were destroyed, official buildings, agricultural lands, civilian houses, hospitals and mosques, while the population of Gaza had no where to escape. The attacks were supposed to stop rocket fire into Israel and to destroy Hamas, but the heaviest loss was faced by the civilians. This report is designed to give a summary of basic facts of what happened during the war.
