Gaza - Landscape of Destruction. A man stands in the ruins of his home in Al-Salateen, Gaza Strip on January 24. 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.
