When the world blind but satellite “speak-up” clearly about the real situation faced by Gaza’s peoples.
This image was acquired by Landsat 8 OLI on September 12, 2015. I used 4-3-2 band combination to highlight vegetation cover and dense-urbanized area of Gaza Strip, Palestine.
It is clearly showed that Gaza is very dense environment with low vegetation cover. While, the ‘neighbor’, in contrast has very nice agriculture area and nice urban structures. This situation draws the real figure of socio-economic condition between two, Palestine and its neighbor.
Along the “modern apartheid wall”, there are large size of agricultural area belongs to the neighbor. This area could be considered as the “buffer zone” since there are no urbanized area along the wall. Inside the Gaza Strip, the vegetation seems not to much and not to healthy.
The situation becomes worst when the winter or rainy seasons comes. Gaza Strip could transform into the biggest jail in the modern world.
