Police officers in Gaza have gathered to remember fallen colleagues who were among the first victims of Israeli bombs during Operation Cast Lead two years ago. The officers took part in a commemorative march through the streets of Gaza City on the second anniversary of the devastating Israeli bombardment and invasion which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians, among them 313 children; most of the children were aged 11-17 although almost 50 of those killed by Israeli soldiers were under 5 years old. The subsequent UN Goldstone Inquiry into the conduct of the war concluded that Israel had committed “war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity” during the three weeks of the assault.
