Israeli air strikes in northern Gaza have caused extensive destruction as evident from satellite images released by Maxar Technologies. The Palestinian death toll has reached a staggering 7,000, following the devastating air strikes in response to a Hamas incursion that resulted in the killing of 1,400 people and the taking of 200 hostages.
The satellite images unveiled the complete annihilation of entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Rows of apartment blocks, once bustling communities, have been reduced to piles of dust and rubble. This level of destruction has not been witnessed in the past four wars between Israel and Hamas.
Amid the relentless bombing campaign, more than a million people have been forced to flee their homes, as Israeli authorities ordered them to evacuate to the south despite the ongoing strikes. The horrifying images captured by Maxar Technologies demonstrate the sheer scale of displacement and devastation faced by these innocent civilians.
Maxar Technologies’ satellite images have also revealed the destruction of a complex of 13 seaside high-rises near Gaza City’s al-Shati refugee camp. These buildings, once symbols of hope and resilience, now lay in ruins, adding to the already unendurable suffering in the region.
While the Israeli military claims their airstrikes solely target militant sites, they accuse Hamas of using civilians as human shields. In response, Palestinian militants have fired thousands of rockets into Israel since the war’s inception, further escalating the crisis.
The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, is sounding the alarm as it faces a severe shortage of supplies, including food, medicine, and fuel for emergency generators. The agency, already under immense strain, is struggling to meet the growing humanitarian needs of the territory.
Despite some limited aid entering Gaza through the Rafah crossing, aid workers on the ground say it falls far short of the requirements. Before the war, an average of 500 trucks entered Gaza daily, providing essential supplies to the people. However, the current aid inflow is inadequate, exacerbating an already dire situation.
As the destruction and suffering continue to intensify, the international community must urgently come together to address the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. The need for immediate action to cease hostilities and provide sufficient aid to those affected is imperative to prevent further loss of life and alleviate the immense suffering endured by innocent civilians caught in the crossfire.
