The map of destruction in Gaza

(B2) Nearly 1000 buildings destroyed (857 totally destroyed and 151 severely damaged), 116 bomb craters on the roads, 361 in cultivated or uncultivated fields... the assessment carried out by the UN satellite agency (UNOSAT) is mathematical but still gives a clear idea of ​​the damage suffered in the Gaza Strip. A map made from satellite images from January 6, 10 and 19. The Agency is careful to point out that this assessment remains imprecise. This is only visible satellite damage. At first glance, it can be noted that the damage is out of all proportion to that identified in Gori during the August War in Georgia, during the Russian offensive.
