Although Israel's latest military assault on Gaza has ended, its 47-year military occupation of the Palestinian territories persists, and the Palestinians who remain in Gaza face no relief from the harsh living conditions imposed by Israel's eight-year military blockade of one of the most densely populated areas in the world.
