CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Colonel Moshe Levy, head of the Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration (CLA), said less than 25 percent of Palestinians killed in the Gaza op were civilians.

The maximum number of civilians killed in the operation is 250, according to a list of names compiled by the CLA.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) report claimed that 311 children and 76 women have been killed, 4,418 people wounded, of whom 1,549 are children and 652 are women.

CLA figures differ with OCHA on the number of casualties in the United Nations school, when the IDF attacked a Hamas terror cell firing mortar shells from inside the school.

CLA said 21 Palestinians were killed in the attack; OCHA said 43 were killed, while also denying that Hamas gunmen were firing at Israeli forces from the school.

Palestinian sources claim that 1,000 Gazans have been killed since the fighting began and more than half are civilians.
