27-12-2010 00:00

From 27 December 2008 to 18 January 2009, the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) launched a major offensive, unconscionable and illegal under international law; and unprecedented in scope and brutality against the Gaza Strip, with intense air, artillery and naval attacks on the Gaza Strip.
During 22 days, the IOF destroyed 11149 houses (2645 completely and 8504 partially), leaving hundreds of thousands of people temporarily displaced and over 20,000 permanently displaced.
Two years after the offensive, Al Mezan interviewed Mr.
Odeh Sulaiman Irmilat, 58, and his son Mohammed, 30, who lost their homes in the offensive.
