Subject/Objective: 
This map illustrates satellite-detected damage and destruction in the Jarara area, Gaza Strip, resulting from the July/August 2014 violence in the area. Using a satellite image collected 01 August 2014 by the Pleiades satellite, and compared with a pre-crisis Pleiades image collected 6 July 2014, UNOSAT analysis has identified 1,369 damaged structures, including 575 destroyed structures, 233 severely damaged structures and 561 moderately damaged structures. In addition, 182 craters on roads and in agricultural and non-urbanized areas are also visible as of 01 August 2014. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR/UNOSAT.
