Communication networks have been restored across Gaza following the longest near-total blackout in the coastal enclave since the start of the war.

The outage, which lasted over a week, was the ninth communications blackout in Gaza since Israel’s war against Hamas began on October 7, according to internet monitoring site Netblocks.

Fares Samer, head of Palestinian telecommunications provider Ooredoo, told CNN on Monday: “Network is back in southern and central Gaza, and is operating in the north. This includes mobile phone communication and internet.”
