Deniz polisinden Adalar çevresinde 'deniz taksi' denetimi

In addition to human suffering, the war also left deep scars on Gaza's cultural heritage. As a result of Israeli bombardment, many historical buildings in the Gaza Strip were damaged or destroyed.

Using satellite tracking, UNESCO, the UN education, scientific and cultural agency, has compiled a list of 41 landmarks that have been completely or partially destroyed.

UNESCO stated that many more cultural heritage sites may have been destroyed, but this has not yet been confirmed.

Isber Sabrine, who is an archaeologist and the president of the Heritage for Peace organization, which studies cultural heritage in conflict zones, said that there are Jewish, Muslim and Christian influences here and said, "One of the most important aspects of Gaza's cultural heritage is cultural and religious diversity."

Since the beginning of the war, the organization has attempted to map the extent of destruction using satellite images from Gaza and eyewitness accounts.

'Sabrine said, ''We estimate that more than 200 cultural heritage buildings or sites have been destroyed. But the security situation makes it difficult to investigate the extent of damage. The question is not the dilapidated buildings but what they mean to people on an existential level."

There are destroyed places in Gaza that are central to the people's identity. When we talk about cultural heritage, we are not just talking about monuments. "We're talking about people, their identities and traditions," he added.

Among the cultural heritages destroyed in Gaza, there are places such as Anthedon Port, Ibn Othman Mosque, Rashad Ash-Shawwa Cultural Center, Great Omeri Mosque, and AsSamra Bath.
