These are the images from Gaza that are too graphic for many US news outlets to publish (DAY 31)

Human misery is hard to look at. But it's one way to understand the true cost of warfare.

Editor's note: This page will be updated to reflect new information.

It's been 31 days since violence erupted between Israel and Hamas. Since then, more than 1,867 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. More than 9,000 Palestinians have been wounded and more than 400,000 displaced. On the Israeli side, 64 soldiers have died, as well as two civilians and a foreign worker. 

Today is the second day of a 72-hour ceasefire.

Those numbers don't convey the horror of what's happening right now in Gaza. Neither do most of the photographs you'll find in news media. Streets and buildings have been blasted to rubble, yes. People are broken and mourning. Those things must be documented. But too often, we hide from the most graphic scenes of violence and death.

This page will do that documenting, and it will be updated as new images continue to appear. This is the cost of war.
