More Than Half of The Palestinians Killed in the Israeli Agression on Gaza last November were Civilians, the Israeli Human Rights Organization B’t Selem, found

B’t Selem, The Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories
Issued today Thursday its finding on the Israeli war conduct during the Attack on the Gaza Strip in November 2012. Here is the synopsis of thereport from their official website.
“After several months of field research and crosschecking data, human rights organization B’Tselem published a report today (Thursday, 9 May 2013) reviewing harm to civilians in Operation Pillar of Defense. The report provides statistics on the numbers of Palestinians and Israelis killed over the course of the operation, which lasted from 14 to 21 November 2012. The report challenges the common perception in the Israeli public and media that the operation was “surgical” and caused practically no fatalities among uninvolved Palestinian civilians. Furthermore, the report finds that there was a significant difference between the first and the final days of the operation: of the uninvolved Palestinian fatalities, 80% were killed in the last four days of the operation.”
