Gaza Blackouts

by astiak on August 9, 2011

There are reports, coming in both on Twitter and via Maan, a Palestinian news outlet, that all communications have been cut in Gaza.

Initial reports suggest that Israeli bulldozers had caused the communications network to go down at the Gaza Strip after cutting the line connecting area of Nahal Oz. International and local telecommunications, internet and mobile telecommunications are reported to be down, as a result cutting off all communication into Gaza.

This is confirmed by reports on twitter #GazaBlackout.

It is yet unknown whether this is intentional or accidental, however it is important ensure media attention is received as all eyes are on the UK riots and last thing we want is the people of Gaza who are under their 1518th day of siege to go unnoticed.

EDIT:

UPDATE: Maan English Report

UPDATE: Further reports on twitter #GazaBlackout suggesting that calls to landlines within Gaza are working, just nothing international.
