Bombing stopped, but violence continues.

Hours ago, Israel and Hamas agreed to a ceasefire.

Fifty two days after Israel began its bombing campaign in an escalation it provoked, at least 2,140 Palestinians are dead, including 514 children. Five Israeli civilians, including one child, and 64 soldiers have died. Israel has destroyed at least 17,000 homes, leaving around a third of Gaza’s 1.8 million Palestinians homeless. Israel has devastated the infrastructure in Gaza, with many hospitals, schools, factories and electric plants all targeted and destroyed.
