Ecocide in Gaza

Published: 5th Apr, 2024


Satellite analysis shows Gaza’s farms devastated and nearly half of the territory’s trees razed. The war has made the area unlivable.

What is Ecocide?

  • Ecocide is the destruction of the environment by humans.
  • Ecocide is broadly understood to mean mass damage and destruction of ecosystems – severe harm to nature which is widespread or long-term.
  • Impact on Gaza: Before the war, farms and orchards covered about 170 sq km (65 sq miles), or 47% of Gaza’s total land area. By the end of February, more than 65 sq km, or 38% of that land has been destroyed.
