It's one year to the day since Israel unleashed a military camapign on the Gaza Strip.

The stated goal of the action was to stop rocket attacks from the Strip into southern Israel.

There has been a dramatic decrease over the previous year, but Palestinian factions claim this is a result of the ceasefire, rather than decreased ability.

As Al Jazeera's Ayman Mohyeldin reports from Gaza, factions remain adamant that their capabilities have only improved.
