Palestinians are beginning to count the cost of the three-week conflict
The Israeli army says it has completed its withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, following a three-week assault against militants from the Hamas group.
Its troops will remain near the border and its spy-planes continue to fly over Gaza, and its navy vessels are still firing sporadically at Gaza's beaches.
Earlier, the UN urged Israel to fully open all of Gaza's borders to allow reconstruction work to begin.
Aid agencies estimate it could cost up to $2bn to repair the damage.
A temporary ceasefire between Israeli troops and Hamas came into effect on Sunday - but it does not include any agreement on the opening of crossings, which are tightly controlled by Israel.
The UN's humanitarian chief, John Holmes, said that unless building materials were allowed in, no reconstruction could begin.
Early on Wednesday, Israel said it had completed its troop pull-out from Gaza.
"As of this morning, the last of the Israel Defence Forces soldiers have left the Gaza Strip and the forces have deployed outside of Gaza and are prepared for any occurrences," an Israeli military spokesman told journalists.
