In response to a barrage of rocket attacks against Israeli cities and the ongoing threats by Hamas leaders for Israel’s destruction, Israel launched an air and ground assault against key Hamas targets in Gaza, including security installations, smuggling tunnels and weapons storage facilities. Israel’s Operation Cast Lead lasted three weeks and ended on January 17, 2009, when Israeli troops pulled out of Gaza.
