The Palestinian official statistics show that 3,500-3,600 homes were totally damaged and 50,000 homes partially destroyed during the offensive. According to Amnesty International more than 3,000 Palestinian homes and hundreds of other properties were destroyed during the fighting and more than 20,000 structures were partially damaged.
