The Palestinian telecom company, Paltel, announced on Tuesday that it suspended its phone and internet services in large areas of Gaza after the main generator of its headquarters overheated and broke down.
According to Paltel, tens of thousands of land-line customers and some 8,000 internet users have been cut off, and those numbers could rise.
The current power crisis in Gaza has led the company to largely depend on generators to overcome long hours of electricity outages.
The company’s technicians could carry out urgent repairs, but they lack spare parts which Israel will not allow into the besieged Gaza Strip.
