Gaza - Landscape of Destruction. A boy walks through the entrance of the house where his family once lived in the Hai al-Salam neighborhood of East Jabaliya, Gaza on 25 January. The Israeli military campaign against Hamas militants in Gaza came to an end on 18 January, after 22 days. Israel completed its withdrawal by 21 January, but did not lift its siege on the Gaza Strip. Intense bombardment had left thousands of homes destroyed and tens of thousands of people displaced.
