English: The Gaza War (2008–09), also known as Operation Cast Lead (מבצע עופרת יצוקה‎) or the Battle of al-Furqan (معركة الفرقان‎), was a three-week armed conflict between Israel and Palestinian armed forces led by Hamas, that took place in the Gaza Strip during the winter of 2008–2009. Israel's stated aim was to stop rocket fire into Israel and arms import into the Gaza strip. After the beginning of the conflict, Palestinian groups continued firing rockets in response to what they characterized as "massacres". Israeli forces attacked suspected rocket firing teams, striking in the densely populated cities of Gaza, Khan Yunis and Rafah.
