Tel Aviv demolishes Gaza archaeological sites
Mon Sep 1, 2014 8:42PM GMT
Israel’s aerial and ground assaults on the Gaza Strip have wreaked destruction on the blockaded area, Press TV reports.
According to the report, the Tel Aviv regime demolished many archaeological and historical sites some dating back to over a thousand years ago in its merciless onslaught on the blockaded sliver.
Israel launched many attacks on “historical sites and monuments in addition to the rest of Palestinian infrastructure,” Hussam Abu El-Naser, from Beit al-Maqdis Institute, told Press TV.
He further noted that many mosques were destroyed or heavily damaged in the Israeli onslaught.
Shelter Cluster, an international organization engaged in assessment of post-war reconstruction, said it will take 20 years for the war-torn Gaza Strip to be rebuilt.
The institute released a report on August 29, putting the number of housing units destroyed or severely damaged by Israel’s bombardment at 17,000.
Five-thousand other units needed repair for damage inflicted upon them in previous wars, said Shelter Cluster, putting the densely-populated enclave’s housing deficit at 75,000.
The 20-year assessment is based on the import of 100 trucks of construction materials per day, an amount commensurate to the current capacity of the sliver’s main cargo crossing, said the group.
It also voiced concerns that reconstruction efforts would be hindered by the Israeli siege.
