Marching for Gaza's freedom, one year later

It has been nearly one year since Israel launched "Operation Cast Lead," on Dec. 27, 2008. It was at 11:30 a.m. that 88 Israeli aircraft flew above the Gaza Strip and simultaneously struck 100 targets within a span of just 220 seconds. Thirty minutes later, a second wave of 60 jets and helicopters struck an additional 60 targets. Among the "casualties" were all civilian police stations and government administration buildings, along with the American International School. At least 230 Palestinians were killed and more than 700 injured on that one day alone.
