Israel versus Gaza

Filed under: Politics — duncan @ 5:07 pm

I thought it might be illuminating to attempt to visually illustrate aspects of the current Israel vs Gaza conflict.

Deaths on both sides since conflict began:

  • 821 Palestinians
  • 13 Israelis

deaths since conflict started

Deaths of Palestinians – adults/children:

  • 257 children
  • 501 adults

deaths of children versus adults

Populations of Israel and Gaza:

Country Population
Gaza 1,481,080
Israel 7,282,000


Population density:

Country Density (km2)
Gaza 4,118
Israel 324

population density

If the Gaza Strip was a country, it’d have the sixth highest population density of any country.

Country Density (km2)
Macau 18,196
Monaco 16,754
Hong Kong 6,422
Singapore 6,336
Gibraltar 4,654
Gaza 4,118
Vatican City 1,866

population density
