A child in bunny costume playing peekaboo(?) with Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Soldiers.

CORRECTION (11/26): The photograph was misidentified as having been taken in Gaza and thereby implied that the boy is Palestinian. The photograph was actually taken in the West Bank city of Hebron by photojournalist Ziv Koren of an Israeli boy dressed up as a bunny during the Jewish holiday of Purim in 2003.

When clicked, the dot opens up a dialogue box detailing the location of the strike, as well as other information related to casualties and property damages as they become available.
