From November 14-21, Israel killed at least 156 Palestinians in the occupied and besieged Gaza Strip, including 103 civilians and 33 children, according to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights. In addition, 6 Israelis were killed by Palestinian rockets.

Israel's attacks against the Gaza Strip were committed with U.S. weapons given to Israel as military aid by the U.S. taxpayer. These weapons were misused by Israel in violation of the U.S. Arms Export Control Act to commit grave human rights abuses of Palestinians.
