Cast Lead, the 2nd anniversary
Two year ago, Israel launched a large scale military operation on the Gaza Strip (Operation Cast Lead). The war devastated Gaza. The Israeli army killed 1,409 Palestinians; about 83% of them were non-combatants. Attacks on the civilian infrastructure and homes left tremendous destruction of civilian public and private property. During the two year after this aggression, Israel kept its blockade of Gaza, banning construction materials and preventing the devastated families from rebuilding their homes and their lives.
This page marks the second anniversary of the Israeli aggression against Gaza.
