A year after Gaza war: ruins, small joys and much to fear| Reuters

It is a far cry from the death and destruction that consumed Gaza a year ago, when Israel launched an air and ground assault to put an end to constant rocket fire by Hamas militants from Gaza. #Business #India #Environment #Egypt #science #Europe #Israel
