The Rafah crossing has opened from Gaza for the first time since October 7 to allow wounded Palestinians to be taken to Egypt for treatment.
The Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt has opened for the first time since the Israel-Hamas war erupted. Reports say that up to 500 foreign nationals and a number of injured Palestinians, needing medical treatment in Egypt, will be allowed to leave the enclave.
On the other hand, telecommunication and internet services have been completely cut off again in Gaza, the Palestinian telecom company Paltel has announced.
“We regret to announce a complete interruption of all communications and internet services with Gaza due to the international routes that were previously reconnected being cut off again,” it said in a brief statement on X.
On Sunday, the company announced that telecommunication and internet services had been gradually restored in Gaza.
At least 100 Palestinians, mostly women and children, were killed and injured in the Israeli onslaught, amid the regime’s intensified bombing campaign against the blockaded territory.
The ongoing Israeli offensive has killed 8,610 Palestinians and left more than 23,000 wounded, according to the figure provided on Tuesday by the Ministry of Health in its daily report on the situation in the occupied territories. The figure excludes the casualties from the Israeli attack on Jabaliya.
