United Nations: More than half of Gaza’s agricultural land destroyed by conflict

Rhino: Agencies – Satellite imagery analyzed by the United Nations has shown that more than half of Gaza’s farmland, essential to feed the Strip’s starving population, has been destroyed by the conflict.
The data revealed increased destruction of farms, field crops and vegetables in Gaza, where hunger is widespread, eight months after the start of the Israeli military campaign.
The World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Wednesday that many in Gaza are exposed to “a catastrophic level of hunger and famine-like conditions”.
Using satellite imagery taken between May 2017 and 2024, the UN Satellite Centre (UNOSAT) and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) found that 57 per cent of Gaza’s permanent crop fields and arable land essential for food security have been significantly reduced in area and quality.
