Putting conflict in perspective – Israeli/Palestinian Coffin Counter


Back in August 2006, infosthetics posted the Israeli versus Lebanese Coffin Counter project, which depicted the proportionality of casualties by nationality in the conflict between Israel and the Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.

With the dramatic current events of the war against Hamas in Gaza, this project has just been renewed and updated [moiz.ca] with the latest (depressing) casualty figures. Each coffin icon represents a single person killed as reported by BBC News, sorted as either Israeli or Palestinian.
