It may take 80 years to rebuild homes destroyed by Israeli bombardment in the besieged Palestinian Gaza Strip. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) said this in a statement on Thursday (May 2).

The news agency Reuters reported this information.

The number of homes destroyed by Israeli bombing in Gaza cannot be rebuilt in this century, UNDP said in a statement. It may take up to the next century.

The statement said it could take up to 80 years to rebuild the destroyed houses. UNDP made this estimate based on the current conflict. This will create decades of misery.

Referring to the amount of rubble in Gaza, UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner said that the seven-month Israeli bombardment in Gaza has caused billions of dollars in damage. As a result, huge piles of rubble were created.

According to Palestinian data, since October 7, Israeli forces have destroyed nearly 80,000 homes. More than 34 thousand people were killed in their attack.

On October 7, the Palestinian independence organization Hamas attacked the Israeli territory through the northern Erez border of Gaza. 1 thousand 200 people were killed in their attack. In addition, Hamas took more than two hundred people hostage. In response, the Israeli army started operations in Gaza from that day. More than 34,000 people have already lost their lives in Gaza due to their aggression. About 80,000 people were injured.
