Date:

According to a UN expert, clearing the massive amount of debris left behind by Israel’s catastrophic war in the Gaza Strip would take up to 14 years.
During a briefing in Geneva, Pehr Lodhammar, a representative of the United Nations Mine Action Service, stated that the heavily inhabited area had an estimated 37 million tons of debris left over from the conflict.

As many as 70,000 dwellings have been demolished by Israeli attacks, and another 290,000 have been damaged to the point of being uninhabitable, according to the media office in Gaza. Along with government buildings, schools, hospitals, churches, mosques, and historical monuments, these buildings were also damaged.
Since Hamas’ cross-border attack on October 7, 2023, which resulted in the deaths of about 1,200 people, Israel has been relentlessly attacking the Gaza Strip.
In addition to killing over 34,000 Palestinians since then, the Israeli military operation has destroyed much of the 2.3 million-person enclave, leaving the majority of residents vulnerable to illness, homelessness, and hunger.
