Israel cut internet and phone lines in the Gaza Strip on Sunday night, marking the third such incident since the Israel-Hamas war began on October 7, according to telecoms firm Paltel.

“We regret to announce the complete shutdown of communications and internet services in Gaza after the Israeli side disconnected the servers,” Paltel said in a statement.

Casualties and Ongoing Conflict:

The health ministry in the Gaza Strip reported that at least 9,770 people had been killed in the Palestinian territory since the war with Israel erupted last month.

Recent Tragedy in Al-Maghazi Refugee Camp:

In the latest strikes in Gaza, the health ministry said the Israeli bombing of the Al-Maghazi refugee camp late Saturday killed 45 people, with an eyewitness reporting children dead and homes smashed.

Ground battles continued in the north of the densely populated Gaza Strip despite calls for a ceasefire from Arab countries and desperate civilians after 30 days of a war that has killed thousands, mostly civilians.

Israeli Troops Tighten Encirclement:

Israeli troops were seen engaged in house-to-house battles as tanks, and armored bulldozers churned through the sand in footage released by the army on the campaign to tighten the encirclement of Gaza City, still home to hundreds of thousands of civilians.

Tragic Toll on Children:

The ministry said at least 4,800 children were among those killed since Israel began striking the Gaza Strip in retaliation to the October 7 attacks carried out by Hamas militants in southern Israel that Israeli officials say killed over 1,400, most of them civilians.
