When landline, mobile, and internet services were cut in the Gaza Strip, communication with 2 million people was no longer possible, the Palestine Telecommunication Company said in their statement.

It added that due to the intense Israeli bombardment, the infrastructure in the region was damaged, and "Gaza was cut off from the world".

With this, the Palestinian Red Crescent announced that contact with its teams in the city was completely cut off following the Israeli bombardment.

"Communication with all our teams working in Gaza has been completely cut off, as the occupation authorities have completely cut landlines, cell phones, and internet communication networks," the Palestinian Red Crescent said in its statement.

The statement highlighted that it was deeply concerned about the inability to provide ambulance services due to this disruption.
