According to the UN, about nine out of ten people in Gaza have been displaced at least once since the start of “Israeli” aggression in the Strip.

Andrea De Domenico, head of the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the occupied Palestinian territory, revealed that an estimated 1.9 million people have been displaced in Gaza.



“We estimate that nine out of 10 people in the Gaza Strip have been displaced at least once, if not 10 times, since October,” De Domenico told reporters.

“We used to estimate that there were 1.7 million displaced people, but since we reached that number, there has been the Rafah operation and the additional displacement there,” he continued. “We have also seen operations in the north that have resulted in people being displaced. Such military operations have forced people to repeatedly rearrange their lives. Behind these numbers are people with fears and grievances, whose dreams and hopes may have diminished over time. The people who have been displaced in the last nine months have been like pawns in a board game.”

Domenico added that the “Israeli” military operations have effectively divided the Gaza Strip into two parts.

OCHA estimates that between 300,000 and 350,000 people live in the northern part of the besieged area and are unable to move south.

He confirmed that since the beginning of the aggression, an estimated 110,000 people have left Gaza for Egypt before the Rafah crossing was closed in early May.



Some of these individuals remained in Egypt, while others moved to other countries.
