On July 7, Israel began a 51-day offensive on the Gaza Strip with the stated aim of halting rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.
By the time the offensive ended on August 26 – with the signing of a cease-fire deal between Israel and Palestinian resistance factions – more than 2,160 Gazans had been killed, mostly civilians, and nearly 11,000 others injured.
At least 72 Israelis – 67 soldiers and five civilians – were also killed during the seven-week-long conflict.
