Internet and Phone Networks Collapse in Gaza

From an AP story by Wafaa Shurafa, Jack Jeffrey, and Lee Keath headlined “Internet, phone networks collapse in Gaza threatening to worsen humanitarian crisis”:

Internet and telephone services collapsed across the Gaza Strip on Thursday for lack of fuel, the main Palestinian provider said, bringing a potentially long-term communications blackout even as Israel signaled its offensive against Hamas could next target the south of the territory, where most of the population has taken refuge.
