At least 1,875 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed in Israel's assault on the Gaza Strip so far, while 67 people, including 64 soldiers, died on the Israeli side. More than 9,800 Gaza residents have also been injured.

The bombings and exchange of rocket fire between Palestinian fighters and the Israeli army has drawn strong reactions from leaders across the globe.

Pro-Palestinian protesters have been staging demonstrations around the world in solidarity with Gaza and in condemnation of Israel’s latest offensive in Gaza. 

The United Nations has condemned both the Palestinian resistance factions' rocket fire and Israeli attacks on civilians, calling for a cessation of hostilities. In response, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister said: "No international pressure will prevent us acting with all our force against a terror organisation that is calling for our destruction. We will continue to forcefully attack anyone who is trying to hurt us".

The Israeli army has said it had hit nearly 4,762 targets on Gaza while it is estimated that more that 3,300 rockets were fired by Hamas towards Israel.
