A War That Can Be Seen From Satellites


Ever thought in the past that a war could be seen from satellites orbiting the Earth?

That’s exactly how the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas is being covered. It’s not just TV news channels and social media platforms that are beaming the war to our living rooms.

Satellites hovering above us are zooming into the conflict zones and clicking hi-resolution images on their advanced cameras. One of them is US-based Maxar, a space technology company, which has shared with the world the following images from above.
