It is estimated that over 1,200 people have been killed and another 5,000 injured in the Gaza tragedy.
Announcing the ceasefire the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in Tel Aviv on Saturday:
"We regret very much the fact that there were so many who, in spite of the genuine efforts made by the Israeli army, suffered from this confrontation. I want to apologize on behalf of the government of Israel for everyone who was unjustly affected, in Gaza, by this operation."
You’re sorry! That’s alright then – we’ll drop the war crime investigations. Better luck next time!
