Suddenly they publicise the photos after close to 2,000 died …



108-page report with high-resolution satellite photos captures extent of destruction in Gaza, to be used by UN committee on Operation Protective Edge.



UN releases Gaza Crisis Atlas documenting damage to Strip


The United Nations released the Gaza Crisis Atlas on Sunday, showing the physical damage wrought on the Strip during IDF Operation Protective Edge using satellite imagery. The 108-page document will be used by a UN investigatory committee on the conflict.

The Atlas overlays a grid over Gaza, dividing it into smaller parcels – with each one receiving a detailed page noting the locations of schools, mosques, and public buildings on high-resolution satellite footage.

Destruction in Gaza City suburb of Shuja’iyeh

The small red dots represent locations that were damaged during the operation, while a red explosion marks the hospitals and power plants that were damaged.



The UN’s Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, which released the document, explained that the damage assessment was based on analysis of satellite photos starting on August 1 and the previous month.



The images were provided by UNOSAT, an organization created in cooperation with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).




A statement released along with the Atlas said it was a central tool to help humanitarian organizations – or anyone working in Gaza – as well any person who wanted to better understand the consequences of the recent conflict.

The satellite photos clearly show the massive destruction to neighborhoods like Shuja’iyeh, one of the focal points of conflict during the fighting.

    I hope that Desert Peace, will grant me the last of my coments on the insanity and how deep the lies and forgerys goes regarding the truth about Islam, and the teachings of Muhammad(pbwh).

    I my self isnt a “muslim” since I left the glearingly hypocratic church a looong time a go, and have since then, only meet More hupocrasy, and what since have given me More sorrow and pain is the delibirate falsifying of not only the teachings done by a local Palestinian, Elomit, with Aramic as his native tung, Yeshua son of Yoseph/pbwh), but also the Islamic path.
    I will give you this, it may seem “unbelivable” but this is what I have know since I was a child, deep in my hart.

    There is NO difference, and we all have the same path.
    There is NO difference between Islam and Christianity, and for that matter the Torah.
    Non what so ever.

    This is writen and given to the Christians By Mohammad(pbwh) him self, this is the core of the so called divition, witch is pimped hard by ignorants, witch I can forgive, but not when I know this is a delibirate lie, to make the great monoestic religions hate eatch others.
    I sincerly hope, that the people starts to think for them selfs, see the lies right in front of you, lies and forgerys maintained by corruptio and consensusses builded up by decades of lies.

    How dark havent the world becomed, when people are afraid of the light.
    WE all are light manifested by matter, and light never dies.

    wake up or die asleep.
