Let's not forget what's happening in Gaza

We don't hear much about Gaza with all that is happening with Lebanon. What are Israel's military goals in Gaza at the moment? Are these targetting killings meant to punish or do they have a point?

---------

Since 27 June 2006, Israel has waged a massive military offensive against the Gaza Strip, causing high numbers of civilian casualties and widespread destruction of public and private property.1 From 08:00 27 June 08:00 08 August, Israels attack on the Gaza Strip resulted in the deaths of 170 Palestinians, including 138 civilians (some 25 per cent of whom were children), 14 security officers, and 15 armed Palestinians. An additional 506 Palestinians were injured.

During this period, the Israeli military carried out 768 attacks on the Gaza Strip, including 190 air attacks by Israeli F16s, UAVs and helicopters. The Israeli military fired over 3,500 artillery and other shells into the Gaza Strip and Israeli military aircraft, including F16s, carried out 380 air patrols.
