Description : Three weeks of conflict in the Gaza Strip have taken a heavy toll on the civilian population and civilian property. The agricultural sector has been particularly affected. With a large part of their land levelled, green houses destroyed, irrigation systems severely damaged and trees uprooted, farmers are facing ever-increasing hardships. Just before the conflict broke out, they were about to start harvesting.
