This is part of a series of daily posts showing photos taken on the same date a year ago, during “Operation Protective Edge,” last summer’s assault on Gaza. Members of the ActiveStills collective documented what was happening at that time inside Gaza, Israel and the West Bank.

Most of the photos that we will publish here over the next month and a half were published on +972 in real time. The average Israeli news consumer, however, did not get the full picture of the death and destruction that was taking place in Gaza, or the popular resistance against the war taking place in the West Bank and Israel. For most Israelis, the Palestinian victims had neither names nor stories.

A year later, as tens of thousands of people in Gaza remain displaced, many without permanent shelter, and as thousands of wounded are still waiting for rehabilitation, we hope this project can help us all remember what happened last summer — told through the lenses of our cameras.
