“Devastating” long-term destruction of agricultural land in Gaza, experts say

Nearly half of Gaza’s agricultural land has been destroyed, and recovery could take years, an expert studying satellite images told CNN on Monday.

“What we see from the satellite data is absolutely devastating,” He Yin, an assistant professor of geography at Kent State University in Ohio, told CNN’s Michael Holmes.
He said they saw craters, bulldozer tracks, and signs of burning in satellite images.

“Almost more than half of the agricultural land was completely destroyed.”

He said the people of Gaza were already dependent on aid and imports because there was insufficient land for agriculture before the war.

“With almost half of the agricultural land gone, the situation can only get worse,” he said.

“I really have no words for this.”
He also warned of years of ramifications for farmers.

“It’s not like if the war ends now, farmers can go back, they can plant trees and harvest next year,” he said.
“You can imagine that even if the war stops now, tonight, there is still no way to rebuild the agricultural sector,” He said. “It’s a long-term effect.”
