Of the 23 Palestinians identified as being killed in last weekend’s violent flare-up in the Gaza Strip, at least 17 (74%) were members of terrorist groups, according to an analysis published by the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center (ITIC).

Among the dead, the report found, were eight Palestinian Islamic Jihad operatives, five Fatah operatives, two Hamas operatives and one Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine operative.

Around 700 rockets were fired by Hamas and Islamic Jihad into southern Israel over a two-day span, killing four Israeli civilians.

The IDF responded with pinpoint strikes on hundreds of terror targets in the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave.
