Policemen tell their stories of war

A year after the Israeli bombing of Gaza started, three policemen share their experiences.



    One year ago the unsuspecting people of Gaza had their lives torn apart by the military offensive that Israel dubbed "Operation Cast Lead".
     
    When the first attack struck, police officers were training on their parade ground in Gaza City. Within seconds, dozens of them friends lay dead or severely injured.

    Three of them told Al Jazeera their recollections of that day.
