Internet services have gone down again in Gaza.

It's the sixth outage that the region has faced since October 7, and comes just a few days after a four day outage.

Palestinian telco Paltel confirmed its network went down this morning around 9:10 am (local time).

"We regret to announce that all telecom services in Gaza Strip have been lost due to the ongoing aggression. Gaza is blacked out again."

Gaza is currently under heavy attack from Israeli forces in retaliation for the Hamas terror attack in October.

Hamas killed more than 1,200 people in Israel in surprise attacks on October 7, with more than 200 people kidnapped.

At least 20,000 people have been killed in Gaza since October 7, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza.

Since the start of the war, Israel has blocked all but one delivery of fuel to Gaza, so resources have been scarce.

The first outage, which took place on October 27, lasted for around 36 hours. The outages left most residents cut off in the region, while the Palestinian Red Crescent (donate here) said it couldn't reach its teams in Gaza.

A second outage on November 1 lasted for a few hours before services were restored. Paltelco stated that communications services, including fixed, cellular, and Internet were impacted. The company noted that services had been disconnected by Israel. Some people with mobiles served by Israeli and Egyptian providers were still able to get limited connectivity.

On November 5, Gaza was hit by its third outage in the space of ten days. The outage lasted for more than 15 hours before services were gradually restored.

A fourth outage took place on November 17, lasting 33 hours. A lack of fuel for backup generators was blamed for the outage.
