More Than Half Of Agricultural Land In Gaza Destroyed By Israeli Aggression: UN


(MENAFN- The Peninsula) QNA

Geneva: The United Nations Satellite Center (UNOSAT) said that more than half of the area of agricultural land in Gaza has been destroyed due to the ongoing Israeli aggression since last October.

Satellite images analysed by the United Nations showed that more than half of Gaza's agricultural land, which is essential to feed the Strip's hungry residents, has been completely destroyed.

By matching satellite images between May 2017 and May 2024, the United Nations Satellite Center (UNOSAT) and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) found that 57 percent of Gaza's permanent crop fields and arable land essential for food security have significantly shrunk in area and quality.

The World Health Organization (WHO) warned yesterday, Wednesday, that many residents of the Strip are exposed to a catastrophic level of hunger and famine-like conditions.
