Assessing the UN’s “Gaza Crisis Atlas 2014” – Dan Smith (Israellycool)
(dailyalert.org, Aug. 27, 2014)
Last week, the UN published a 100-page “Gaza Crisis Atlas” showing the location of 12,000 points representing damage caused between July 9and August 5.
Several patterns are discernible: The attacks are in no way “random” or “indiscriminate.” 72% are within 3 km. of the border with Israel, the location of dozens of terror tunnels dug from Gaza into Israel.
The IDF has published a map of known terrorist infrastructure. By overlaying the IDF’s map with the UN’s damage points, the correlation is uncanny.
It now becomes clear that the rest of Gaza was, for the most part, undamaged. Less than 5% of the land was affected.

Hamas used many of these buildings – including houses, hospitals and schools – as sites to launch rockets.
