square kilometres: It was estimated that 1,400 Palestinians were killed by Israeli security forces, according to Rabble. Schools, hospitals, universities and a major part of Gaza's infrastructure was destroyed. The main purpose of our delegation was to build playgrounds for the children of Gaza after Israel's brutal aerial, naval and ground attack named Operation Cast Lead. The ultimate objective of our delegation was an attempt to break the siege imposed since 2007 by the Israel government on the Gaza strip -- a densely populated 365 square kilometres where 1.8 million people live, many of them in precarious conditions. We were motivated by our quest for justice and our will to see with our own eyes the conditions Palestinians were living in after the devastation caused by the military operation. Our delegation was composed of U.S. human rights activists, mostly women, and a few Canadians. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
