Internet and phone services have collapsed in Gaza

Internet and phone services have collapsed in the Gaza Strip under intensified bombardment, largely cutting off its 2.3 million people from the outside world and each other.

Frequent explosions from airstrikes lit up the sky over Gaza City after nightfall, when the black-out in internet, cellular and landline services hit.

The Red Crescent says it lost all contact with its operations room and medical teams. It says it fears people will no longer be able to contact ambulance services. Other aid groups say they are unable to reach staff on the ground.

The Palestine Telecommunications Company, Paltel, announces “a complete disruption of all communication and internet services” due to bombardment.
