UN estimate finds nearly one-fifth of Gaza's buildings destroyed or damaged

The United Nations Satellite Centre (Unosat) published a new assessment estimating that about 40,000 buildings, 18 percent of all buildings intact before the war, have been damaged or destroyed since 7 October.

Israel's indiscriminate bombing campaign and ground invasion in Gaza have displaced around 1.9 million people, or about 85 percent of Gaza's population.
