UN releases before-and-after pictures of Gaza

The UN releases before-and-after satellite pictures of the Gaza Strip, showing a neighborhood in Gaza City and Al-Atatra, a neighborhood in the city of Beit Lahia, prior to Israel’s Operation Protective Edge and in its aftermath.

The photos on the left show both neighborhoods as they were before the operation, with houses standing intact between lanes, parks and greenery.

The photos on the right, on the other hand, show both areas practically razed to the ground, with Al-Atatra in particular almost unrecognizable in its devastation.
