“The darkest of the last decade.” Satellite images reveal darkness of Gaza nights
An analysis by the British magazine The Economist of satellite images revealed that Gaza nights have become “the darkest in the last decade”, due to the Israeli war in the Gaza Strip and the cut-off of electricity and fuel supply to its population. approximately 2.3 million people.
Satellite images have revealed the extent of the darkness that has descended on the Gaza Strip following Israel’s war against the strip since October 7.
An analysis carried out by the British magazine The Economist using satellite images taken at night showed that nights in Gaza have become “the darkest in the last decade”.
According to the magazine, the Gaza Strip has seen a significant increase in nighttime lighting, which has more than doubled since 2012, with the need for electricity increasing due to the increase in population.
However, this increase in nighttime lighting was interrupted by a series of declines due to repeated power plant shutdowns and successive wars.
No other event in the past decade has caused as much darkness as the current war, according to the new images, which are part of NASA’s Project Black Marble.
The images indicate that nighttime lights have decreased by 90% since the start of the war, meaning electricity consumption has fallen by a similar percentage.
Gaza relies directly on Israeli power lines for two-thirds of its energy sources, and most of the rest comes from imported fuel used in the strip’s power plant.
But since the war began more than a month ago, Israel has cut off electricity and fuel supplies to Gaza’s population of around 2.3 million.
The occupation has allowed a limited number of trucks carrying essential goods to enter Gaza from Egypt, but has so far refused to allow fuel to enter the strip, due to allegations that which “Hamas would have seized it and used it for military purposes”.
With power outages, hospitals, sewage treatment plants and flour mills stop working and search and rescue missions become impossible, according to The Economist.
On Sunday, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society announced that Al-Quds Hospital in Gaza City was out of service and had completely stopped functioning, due to a lack of fuel and a power outage.
