Gaza at war (January 2009)

Death and destruction hang over the Palestinian Territory.

Israel launched an offensive against the Gaza Strip and the Hamas movement on December 27. The cost was heavy. Israel had 13 dead but around 1,300 Palestinians were killed and 5,300 wounded before a ceasefire was accepted on January 18. Some parts of central Gaza emerged virtually unscathed. But other communities, such as Jabalya, and Beit Lahiya were totally devastated by bombing and shelling.
