Scenes from the Gaza Strip

It has now been 12 days since Israel began its bombardment of the Gaza
Strip. On January 3rd, the Israeli Defense Force ground troops began
entering Gaza, soon cutting the territory in half. Israel’s stated
goals are to end rocket attacks originating from Gaza – which had
increased sharply following the end of a cease-fire agreement in
December. As Israeli troops began entering Gaza, foreign reporters and
photographers were denied entry to the territory by Israel, halting any
reports originating from Gaza except those coming from Palestinians. As
of today, since the beginning of this campaign, there have reportedly
been over 650 deaths in Gaza, and 10 Israelis killed, including 7
soldiers. Israel suspended operations for a few hours today, to allow
humanitarian aid to reach the people of Gaza. Officials from France,
Egypt and Turkey are working with Israel and the Palestinians to draw
up a cease-fire plan, but many details still remain unresolved. See
previous Big Picture entry on Israel and Gaza from a week ago. (34 photos total)
