International Middle East Media Center: The Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture has estimated the total cost of damages due to recent Israeli airstrikes on ex-settlements (now cultivated land) in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, to be in the realm of $2.5 million.

The Ministry stated on Friday, according to Al Ray, that Israeli bombings have destroyed 70 dunams (70 thousand square meters) of greenhouse facilities, 15 dunams of citrus crops, 10 dunams of grapes, 20 dunams of vegetables and 30 storehouses containing farm equipment.

Irrigation and electricity systems, agricultural equipment and ready-to-market crops were also destroyed, in addition to damages inflicted on the land itself.
