B’Tselem’s databases have recently undergone an upgrade. A great deal of time and effort were expended to ensure that the data remain intact in the upgrade. Inevitably, digital transfers may not be entirely problem-free. Should you encounter any problem or data that seem incorrect to you, we would appreciate your comments by email to seran@btselem.org

Fatalities after operation Cast Lead

The Fatalities' data can be shown either by the date of the event in which they were hurt, or by the date of their death. Since some of the fatalities died of their injuries days, weeks and sometimes months after they were hurt, choosing the view affects the distribution of data.
