Visualizing Palestine’s first ‘data sketch’ graphic charts the routine violations of the last Egyptian-brokered ceasefire from 22 November 2012 til 7 July 2014. While both the Israeli military and Palestinian factions violated the terms of the ceasefire, a close examination shows that Israeli violations were more frequent and far more deadly. 

This is the first of two VP graphics to be released on the situation in Gaza. Please visit http://bit.ly/vp-violations for the raw data behind this data graphic.

“We share the broadly held public sentiment that it is unacceptable to merely return to the status quo” of devastating Israeli siege on Gaza, the civil society leaders said. “To do so would mean a return to a living death.”

To put the situation in context, Visualizing Palestine (visualizingpalestine.org) created this infographic that charts the routine violations of the last Egyptian-brokered ceasefire from 22 November 2012 until 7 July 2014.
