The United Nations said Tuesday that its satellite analysis agency UNOSAT had determined that 18 percent of Gaza’s infrastructure had been destroyed since the outbreak of war with Israel, following the unprecedented October 7 assault by Hamas militants.

The estimate is based on an image taken on November 26, the agency said, a 49 percent increase in the total number of structures affected since a previous assessment on November 7.
