    61 Israelis killed since the beginning of the ceasefire - 6 are soldiers. 68 killed in the same time prior to ceasefire - 37 soldiers. So more Israeli civilians have been killed since the ceasefire than before. Palestinian side, 262 killed since ceasefire - with 99-ish killed "whilst not participating in hostilities", note NOT necessarily civilians, in fact a significant number of these were wanted men, killed when being arrested and bystanders in an assasination attempt and were throwing stones. Certainly none were trying to buy falafel at a bus stop like the the last victims of a suicide bombing. One rather obvious point is that the Israeli citizens were killed miles from conflict zone and were recognisable as such by the bomber who would have had to evade several soldiers to do so. If you want to get a feel for the "civilian toll" on the Palestinians side, feel free to look at the Betselem site. Finally the -ish is due to having to scroll down a page and keeping count
