About 90 percent of the buildings located along Gaza's eastern border with Israel have been destroyed or damaged during the ongoing war, according to a preliminary analysis of satellite imagery from the United Nations Satellite Center (UNOSAT).

UNOSAT's comprehensive damage assessment (CDA) identified the damage and destruction within a 1-kilometer stretch of land from the Armistice Demarcation Line in the Gaza Strip and the Occupied Palestinian Territory on various dates, including October 15, 2023, November 7, 2023, January 7, 2024, and February 29, 2024.

 The UN agency reports that statistical analysis indicates a rapid increase in damaged and destroyed buildings within the zone, from 15 percent to 90 percent between October 2023 and February 2024.
