Israel has evidence that almost half of Palestinians killed in Operation Protective Edge were combatants, its deputy foreign minister said on Saturday.

"There is research being done in the military, very professionally and reliably, (whose) conclusion is that at least 47% of the fatalities are terrorists, with photographs and names," Tzachi Hanegbi told Channel 2, adding that the data would be presented to investigators.
