Jerusalem-based B'Tselem reviewed in a report the harm to civilians in Operation Pillar of Defense as well as the statistics about the number of Palestinians and Israelis killed over the course of the operation, which lasted from November 14 to 21, 2012.
The report stated that more than half of the Palestinians who lost their lives during air, land and sea attacks on Gaza were civilians who did not take part in the war actually.
It was noted in the report that during the Israeli attack, 20 children --youngest of all was 12 years old-- were killed.
