63 killed in Kfar Aza with 52 killed by IDF and and 11 killed by Palestinians.. 5/6 killed by IDF. My estimate based on video below in which 5/6 buildings where deaths occurred were either shot up by heavy automatic weapons fire, rubbled via tank or artillery shells, or burned to the ground by tank shells. The buildings where Palestinians killed people showed few if any signs of internal damage.

**Estimate based on photos of burned out cars.
