Internet services have gone down again in Gaza, Palestine, just three days after being partially restored following a week-long outage.

The latest outage was announced at 6:08pm local time today by telco Paltel.

"We regret to announce that telecom services in Gaza Strip have been lost. Gaza is blacked out again for the 10th time since October 7th due to the ongoing and escalating aggression," the telco said in a statement.

The latest outage is the tenth since the conflict between Israel and Palestine escalated in October.

Gaza had been hit by a week-long outage between January 12 to January 19, as the region continues to come under heavy fire from Israeli forces in retaliation for the Hamas terror attack in October.

Two workers died attempting to restore the services from heavy shelling.

Services were only partially restored on October 19, until going down again today.

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

At least 24,000 people have been killed in Gaza since October 7, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, with more than 60,000 wounded.

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. Two more outages hit the Gaza Strip last month.
