GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Health said on Tuesday that nearly 5,000 homes had been destroyed in Gaza as of late Monday, a number expected to rise amid renewed bombardment.

Ministry spokesman in Gaza Ashraf al-Qidra said that a total of 4,987 homes have been completely destroyed by Israeli shelling and airstrikes in the last 22 days.

26,270 homes, meanwhile, have been partially destroyed, of which 4,136 are no longer suitable for habitation.

The statements come after Israeli authorities gave evacuation orders to more than 400,000 residents of northern Gaza on Monday, including two major neighborhoods in Gaza City.

The United Nations said on Tuesday that 215,000 Gazans had fled their homes amid the bloodiest Israeli assault on the besieged coastal enclave since 2009.

All borders in and out of Gaza, however, are completely shut, forcing the majority to take shelter in UN-designated shelters.

Last week, Israel shelled four UN shelters, killing more than 20 and injuring dozens.

The attack tunnels built into Israel and bunkers for weaponry shows just where construction materials entering Gaza in the past few years have been used. Gazans will be wise to learn how to make adobe, because they may not be seeing cement or rebar for a long time.

Hamas chose to start this war, and
Hamas chooses to continue you this war, so
Blame Hamas for Never Choosing Peace for Gaza, and
For the completely destroyed 5,000 Gaza homes, and everything else !!!

1) Outlier , just rehashing propaganda hah ...only a few of the tunnels had concrete reinforcement . There where thousands of new buildings in Gaza from smuggled concrete . You typically FAIL to fathom the destruction , this is like years of WWII London-Berlin destruction in 3 weeks . Wake up and get some humanity .

These 2 comments are so pathetic, so sad the israelis have to pay ppl to propel their propaganda, Goebbels would have been proud. The Warsaw ghetto had tunnels, what if we all sided with the nazis who said we have to kill the jews because they build tunnels to threated ordinary german citizens...you dont look at it like that. Holocaust survivors, Hajo Meyer, Hwtty Epstein say israel are the new nazis (although not new, theyve been committing genocide since 1948 and earlier). Your WaR Crimes seen

Hamas says they are winning the WAR and that their people's steadfast support of Hamas is 100% on their side. So why are you crying if your leaders are telling you that they are winning the war. Instead be happy. Hamas has convinced you that this is what winning looks like.

This is not a war, it's a 66 year illegal occupation. Blame Israel, who has been denying Palestinians the right to humanity for 66 years. Blame Israel for stealing land and water that never belonged to them. Blame Israel for demolishing homes and ancient olive groves. Blame Israel for arresting and murdering civilians with impunity for way too long. There is no point in Hamas using children as human shields, because from what I see it doesn't make any difference, Israelis are psychopaths.

There will only be years of death and destruction to come. Ask an Palestinian what the map will look like and they say the whole area will be Palestine. Ask any Israeli and they will say it will still be divided. No one will ever agree, Death will come to all Jews and Muslims.

Why do people blame israel. They did not start the attacks. Israel keeps getting attack by muslims and arabs.
