A Palestinian human rights group has released the names of 1,417 Gazans it says were killed in Israel's recent war on Hamas. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said Thursday that of those killed, 926 were civilians, 236 were combatants and 255 were members of the Palestinian security forces. Most of the policemen were allegedly killed in a series of IAF bombing attacks on Hamas security compounds on December 27, the first day of the war. The group says it has investigated every civilian death. The list is posted on the center's Web site. Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev disputes the findings. He says Israel is working on its own list and contends that most of those killed were combatants or legitimate targets.
