  • This report documents damage over the Gaza Strip following the July-August 2014 conflict. It is based on analysis of commercial satellite imagery and quantifies damage to overall building structures, health facilities, education facilities, agricultural fields and greenhouses. The study also compares damage from the 2014 conflict to that of the 2009 conflict. The analysis is supplemented by ground photos following UNOSAT deployment to Gaza in September 2014.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction of education facilities in Gaza Strip, resulting from recent conflicts in the area. Using satellite imagery collected 14 August 2014 and 27-28 August 2014 by the Pleiades satellite, and compared with a pre-crisis Pleiades image collected 6 July 2014, UNOSAT analysis has identified 1 destroyed structure, 12 severely damaged structures and 51 moderately damaged structures from a total of 413 schools in the Gaza Strip. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction of health facilities in Gaza Strip, resulting from recent conflicts in the area.

  • This map illustrates satellite-detected changes in agricultural areas of the Gaza Strip resulting from the July ? August 2014 conflict in the area. Using a satellite image collected 14 August 2014 by the Pleiades satellite, and compared with a pre-crisis Pleiades image collected 6 July 2014, UNOSAT performed Normalized Difference Vegetation Index analysis, multitemporal classification, and manual review in order to detect significant changes occurring in agricultural areas between those dates. This methodology assessed damage occurring as a result of razing, heavy vehicle tracking, bombing, shelling, and related conflict dynamics. The analysis includes damage occurring to both active crop fields and fallow lands, as well as in many household gardens. Note that due to the special characteristics of the area analysed, razing might have been overestimated in sandy areas, and some ambiguity often exists between unused lands, pasture lands, agricultural fields, and other land cover types. UNOSAT analysis indicates that ~1,800 hectares of agricultural fields have likely been razed or heavily damaged by these factors in the intervening period. In addition, using imagery acquired on 27 and 28 August 2014 UNOSAT assessed damage to greenhouses and identified a total 657 destroyed, 214 severely damaged and 392 moderately damaged greenhouse structures. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction in the Gaza Strip, resulting from recent conflicts in the area. Using satellite imagery collected 14, 27 & 28 August 2014 by the Pleiades satellite, and compared with a pre-crisis Pleiades image collected 6 July 2014, UNOSAT analysis has identified 6,761 destroyed structures, 3,565 severely damaged structures, and 4,938 moderately damaged structures in the analysed area. In addition, 7,473 craters on roads and in agricultural and non-urbanized areas are also visible in the crisis images. Note that a few areas along the border with Israeli were analyzed in less detail as imagery contained reduced resolution in these areas. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
  • This map illustrates a density comparison of satellite-detected damages in Gaza Strip, which resulted from recent conflicts in this area in both 2009 and 2014. Damage levels used in this density analysis only concern structures that were destroyed or severely damaged. The 2014 analysis was generated using Pleiades imagery taken 14, 27 & 28th August 2014 and compared with a pre-crisis a Pleiades image collected 6 July 2014. The 2009 analysis was generated using WorldView 02 and GeoEye imagery taken 10 & 21st January 2009. The 2009 imagery however was reduced resolution so damages may have been underestimated for that time period. This Density comparison is to illustrate the level of damaged observed by UNOSAT between the two conflict events. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
