Communications networks collapsed in Gaza, which was plunged into darkness due to Israel cutting off electricity and not allowing fuel to enter.
“Live network data shows that internet connectivity has collapsed in the Gaza Strip, which is under intense bombardment,” London-based internet monitoring company Netblocks said in a statement.
The Palestinian telecommunications company Jawwal said: “We regret to announce that all means of communication and the Internet with the Gaza Strip have been completely cut off.”
“The bombs destroyed all the channels.”
The written statement issued by the company stated: “The intense bombing during the past hour destroyed all international channels linking Gaza to the outside world.”
Ooredoo Telecommunications Company, operating in Palestine, also announced a complete interruption of mobile phone services in the Gaza Strip, as of Friday evening.
Sources from the Palestinian Ministry of Communications and Information Technology reported that there was a sudden cessation of services from the Gaza Strip for an unknown reason.
