It is not confirmed if this is due to-Elon Musk who said on Saturday that SpaceX’s Starlink will support communication links in Gaza with “internationally recognized aid organizations”, prompting Israel’s communication minister to say Israel would fight the move. But internet services appear to be returning to very slowly to Gaza.
Despite international calls for a ceasefire #Israel has intensifed it bombing on GAZA. This has also prompted fear among the families of those kidnapped by #HAMAS that Israel may bomb it;s own citizens. According to Egypt Israel is blocking vital aid from entering into Gaza.
Musk said in a post on social media platform X that it was not clear who has authority for ground links in Gaza, but we do know that “no terminal has requested a connection in that area”.
A telephone and internet blackout isolated people in the Gaza Strip from the world and from each other on Saturday, with calls to loved ones, ambulances or colleagues elsewhere all but impossible as Israel widened its air and ground assault.
International humanitarian organizations said the blackout, which began late on Friday, was worsening an already desperate situation by impeding life-saving operations and preventing contact with their staff on the ground.
