A Palestinian human rights group said a total of 1,284 Palestinians were killed and 4,336 wounded in Israel's 23-day war on Gaza's Hamas rulers. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) said the data was collected by its field researchers and checked against information from hospitals and clinics. The center says 894 of the dead were civilians, including 280 children and minors, ages 17 and under. In addition to the civilians, 167 members of the civil police were also killed. The PCHR was a main source of information about dead and wounded during the war. The IDF says 500 Palestinian militants were killed in the fighting. Gaza's militant groups say they lost 158 fighters.
