As Israel’s war in Gaza marks 26 days, communications and internet services in the Strip have been completely cut off, according to the Palestinian telecommunications operator. This is the second time that the 2.4 million inhabitants have been cut off, coinciding with the intense Israeli attacks against the Palestinian territory.
The human rights organization Human Rights Watch expressed concern that such a cut could serve as a “cover for mass atrocities.”
The Israeli Army claimed today to have attacked more than 11,000 Hamas targets since the war began, which has added another night of air and ground bombings in the enclave.
After the Hamas attack on October 7 in Israel, according to authorities, more than 1,400 people died, mostly civilians and about 240 hostages.
For its part, the Palestinian Islamist movement claims that more than 8,500 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in Israeli bombings on the Gaza Strip since the start of the conflict. Two thirds of the dead are women and children.
