The demographics of those who have survived and are displaced:

In the UN report it states “The existence of thousands of explosive remnants of war in civilian areas is a major concern, especially regarding children, farmers, refugees returning home and humanitarian workers. Areas up to three kilometres from Gaza’s perimeter fence (44 per cent of the Gaza Strip), which were declared as a “buffer zone” for the duration of the Israeli ground incursion, are considered particularly dangerous.”
The UN report confirms that there were no reports of firing by Palestinian armed groups in Gaza into Israel during the ceasefire.
