At the time of writing, Israeli air strikes and shelling had killed dozens of Palestinians since the start of Operation Protective Edge. There had been no deaths on the Israeli side.

Some of those killed by Israel were Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants, others were civilians, including women and children. The Israeli army has been bombing the family homes of militants, which it claims were also being used for military purposes. Many of the children killed thus far were related to individuals whose homes were targeted.

All too often, casualties on both sides of this conflict are remembered only as numbers. This post is a reminder that each one has a name.

The following is a list of those Palestinians who have been killed thus far, as provided by the Palestinian Ministry of Health to Lebanese daily Al Akhbar. This list will be updated, including the names of Israeli casualties, should there be any.
