Almost 80% of Gaza's population has fled their homes

Dec 3, 2023

According to UN estimates, about 80% of Gazans were forced to leave their homes.


According to Ukrinform, this was reported by Sky News.

"The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said that about 1.8 million of the 2.2 million people living in Gaza are considered internally displaced persons," the report said.

As reported by Ukrinform, on October 7, Hamas invaded Israel and began killing and abducting both military and civilians. Israel responded by shelling terrorist bases in the Gaza Strip.

The seven-day break in hostilities led to the release of about a hundred hostages held by Hamas in exchange for the release of 240 Palestinian prisoners in Israel and facilitated the access of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli army "resumed full-scale hostilities" after the Hamas group violated the ceasefire agreement.
