Israelis killed by Palestinians in Israel and Palestinians killed by Israelis in Gaza - 2008.png

This is a list of Palestinian fatalities resulting from Israeli attacks in or near the Gaza Strip in 2008. At least 868 Palestinians died as a result of attacks by Israeli security forces on inhabitants of the Gaza Strip in 2008. Hamas, the organization elected by Palestinians to govern and administrate Gaza, and Israel, an occupying power,[1] began a ceasefire on June 19, 2008. The blockade of the Gaza Strip remained in effect following the ceasefire agreement.[2] Israel broke the truce on November 4. On that day the Israeli military attacked and killed six Hamas gunmen that Israeli officials allege were constructing a tunnel to be used to abduct Israeli soldiers.[3] Following this event the number of rockets fired from Gaza escalated, 125 being launched in the month of November. See: List of rocket and mortar attacks in Israel in 2008. On Dec. 27, 2008 Israel launched massive airstrikes in the Gaza Strip that began a war that lasted until Jan. 18, 2009. See 2008–2009 Israel–Gaza conflict and Timeline of the 2008–2009 Israel–Gaza conflict.

The data used to compile the list was provided by B'Tselem, an Israeli human rights organization.[4]
