European Space Imaging (EUSI) partner Maxar, a global provider of high-resolution satellite imagery and geospatial data, has collected new satellite imagery on November 17th at 11:31 AM local time, revealing a distressing scene in Gaza.
The images capture a significant gathering of people along Salah al Deen Road in southern Gaza who are desperately trying to escape southward through the evacuation corridor. The sheer number of individuals utilizing the corridor is evident, painting a grim picture of the plight faced by Palestinians in the region.
The imagery also showcases the extent of the damage sustained by buildings and infrastructure in the area, further highlighting the devastating consequences of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Gaza.
This revelation coincides with the Israeli military’s ongoing offensive in Gaza, which has resulted in the deaths of numerous Palestinians, including innocent children. The United Nations has urgently called for an immediate ceasefire to prevent further loss of life and alleviate the worsening humanitarian crisis.
The images obtained specifically focus on the thousands of individuals involved in the evacuation process. The primary area highlighted in the imagery is located at coordinates 31.474, 34.436.
As the situation in Gaza continues to escalate, it is imperative for the international community to acknowledge the urgent need for peace and stability in the region. The satellite imagery provided by Maxar serves as a powerful testament to the dire circumstances faced by the Palestinian population and the imperative for immediate attention and action.
