War-related environmental crises: A reality too critical to ignore

Abstract

Since February 2022, two major geopolitical crises have shaken the world. First, Russia attacked Ukrainian territory as part of a “special military operation” to demilitarize it and defend Russian-speaking regions. In turn, in October 2023, the Middle East has experienced a new dramatic episode in its history, with an Israeli-Palestinian war in the Gaza Strip. In both cases, the violent fighting is causing humanitarian crises. While this is an essential issue, it should not conceal the reality of major ecological disasters. This article points out that war-related environmental crises have been a known reality since the 1960s and should lead to the definitive recognition of war ecocides.
