The deadly arsenal on both sides of Israel’s invasion of Gaza

Horrific violence continues to spread across Gaza this week, where an Israeli air and ground offensive against the Islamist group Hamas has killed more than 700 people — most of them Palestinian civilians, and many of them children. Both the United Nations and the US, Israels main ally, have called for a cease-fire, though neither side has shown any sign of relenting. This months fighting marks the third time in five years that Israel has launched a large-scale military operation in Gaza, a small enclave on the Mediterranean that Hamas has governed since winning a majority in the 2006 Palestinian parliamentary elections. Ten days later, Israel launched a ground invasion aimed at crippling the vast network of underground tunnels that Hamas uses for weapon storage and to launch attacks.
