 Among the dead were 437 children under 16, 110 women, 123 elderly men, 14 medics and four journalists, according to Muawiya Hassanein, the head of Gaza medical services.

The wounded include 1,890 children and 200 people in serious condition, he said. Six hundred injured people have been transferred outside Gaza for treatment.

Israel unleashed its Operation Cast Lead on the Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip on Dec 27 in response to rocket fire from the territory and brought it to an end last Sunday with a ceasefire.

On the Israeli side, three civilians and 10 soldiers died in combat and rocket strikes and dozens were wounded, according to official figures.Malaysiakini news
