A Palestinian boys stand in a house with clay, after their home was destroyed during the 22-day Israeli offensive in Rafah town in the southern Gaza Strip on July2, 2009.  Many parts of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip are still in ruins almost after the guns fell silent following Israel's war on the aid-dependent territory. Israel's blockade on Gaza doesn't allow construction material into the Palestinian territory. Amnesty International said on Thursday Israel inflicted "wanton destruction" in the Gaza Strip in attacks that often targeted Palestinian civilians during an offensive in December and January in the Hamas-run enclave, in the 117-page report on the 22 days of fighting.
