Links and data that
be useful for the preparation of the Gaza Freedom March

There is plenty of

of the Gaza Strip
Among these is one set of 5 maps "Damage(d)
Assessment Overview For Gaza Strip", showing the locations of
destroyed buildings etc..
These maps show the different sections of Gaza with different scales. I
used these maps for one continuous map of the Gaza strip (as jpg,
printed on 5 pages from pdf
- file). In part it does not have quite the
resolution of the original maps.
These maps may be good for general orientation.
A satellite view of Gaza
(jpg, 28 MB),
patched together from Google Earth
images. Names of locations and roads were added, as taken from the
UNOSAT-maps. This map is too big to be printed
In the meantime it is general knowledge that operation
actually started on Nov. 4, 2008. See Graphs
showing the killing rate in Gaza and the rate of rockets coming out of
Gaza during the year 2008 up until Dec. 26.
