As the Internet is Cut in Gaza -- Voices Ring Out for Palestine Around the World

 Quds News Network reports| "Jawwal #Palestine announces that Israeli airstrikes have destroyed #Gaza's last international cable, which had been connecting the enclave with the world, resulting in a full telecommunications outage." Amnesty Mena said, "Palestinian civilians in the occupied Gaza Strip are now also trapped in a complete communications blackout, with data from internet monitoring networks reporting signals rapidly failing as air and ground strikes reportedly intensify."

 Jewish Voice for Peace: Now at New York City's Grand Station: Thousands of Jews and Allies hold and emergency sit-in demanding a ceasefire in Gaza. "We are refusing to allow a genocide to be carried out in our names."

Doctors Without Borders/MSF International
We are deeply concerned about the situation in Gaza. We have lost contact with some of our Palestinian colleagues on the ground. We are particularly worried for the patients, medical staff and thousands of families taking shelter at Al Shifa hospital and other health facilities. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation.

Thousands rally in Ottawa, Canada, for ceasefire and end to genocide.

TONIGHT in Toronto Thousands take over Yonge/Bloor in front of the Israeli consulate to DEMAND an immediate ceasefire and an end to Israeli genocide, ethnic cleansing and illegal occupation of Palestine.

The Quakers American Friends Service Committee said,
Israeli bombing in #Gaza today destroyed the last remaining telecommunications links between Gaza and the outside world. We have lost all contact with AFSC staff and partners in Gaza. An immediate ceasefire is needed to bring this catastrophe to an end.
