Internet connectivity in Gaza City has been below 20% since Tuesday, according to analyst Doug Madory of the network monitoring firm Kentik Inc., whose data shows outages began Saturday morning.

Madory says an internet provider in Gaza told him that Israeli air strikes in response to the Hamas onslaught had cut fiber optic cables. The provider declined to speak with an Associated Press reporter but Madory relays his message: “Pray for us to stay alive and stop this war.”
