Satellite images of Gaza show the devastation in the tiny Palestinian enclave

    Monday, July 28, 2014   No comments

 Satellite images released by Unitar/Unosat show how vast tracts of the Gaza Strip have been completely destroyed over the course of the Israeli offensive, now in its 21st day.

As the death toll in Gaza passed 1,000, the US NGO distributed satellite photos of the tiny Palestinian enclave before and after the air strikes and ground assault by Israeli forces. United Nations experts have said it will take years for the Strip's civilian infrastructure to be rebuilt at a cost of at least $115 million - if the fighting ends now. 

More children than militants have been killed during the offensive, according to figures from the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. The death toll as of July 27 was comprised of 832 civilians - 221 of them children - and 182 armed combatants.
