Satellite images show damage in Gaza strip

The conflict in the Gaza Strip continues to escalate, with Israeli airstrikes causing significant devastation in various parts of the region. The airstrikes resulted in the destruction of homes and businesses, leaving residents to sift through the wreckage. Satellite images illustrate the extensive damage caused by the ongoing bombardments in northern Gaza.

This war, now in its 20th day, marks the deadliest of the five Gaza conflicts for both sides. According to the Hamas-run Health Ministry, the Palestinian casualties are significant, with at least 6,546 Palestinians killed and 17,439 wounded. In the occupied West Bank, more than 100 Palestinians have lost their lives, and 1,650 have been wounded in violence and Israeli raids since October 7. It's important to note that there may be discrepancies in casualty figures, as the data cited by Hamas is based on hospital reports.

On the Israeli side, over 1,400 people have been reported killed, mainly civilians who perished during the initial Hamas incursion on October 7. Additionally, Israel's military has indicated that 222 people remain as hostages in Gaza, including foreigners believed to have been captured by Hamas during the conflict.
