Since October 7, Israeli strikes on Gaza have killed 24,620 Palestinians and injured 61,830, according to a Gaza health ministry statement.
According to the ministry, 172 Palestinians have been killed and 326 injured in the last 24 hours.
Meanwhile, the digital civil rights group Access Now called the week-long telecommunications blackout in Gaza a "matter of life and death" and asked that it be lifted immediately.
The rights group said in a statement that the continuous internet blackout in the besieged enclave has delayed crucial assistance coordination and made it "increasingly difficult, if not outright impossible," to document and transmit events on the ground, according to Al Jazeera.
The Middle East and North Africa policy and advocacy director of the organization stated, "It is unconscionable to play with connectivity in the midst of unprecedented violence and unfathomable human suffering."
"Internet shutdowns cannot be used as weapons of war. Access Now continues to urge a quick physical and digital ceasefire, as well as the complete restoration of telecommunications services in the Gaza Strip.
