Gaza has lost telecom contact again, while Israel's military announces it has surrounded Gaza City

DEIR AL-BALAH, Gaza Strip - Gaza came under the third total communications outage since the start of the war, while Israel's military announced late Sunday that it had encircled Gaza City and divided the besieged coastal strip into two.

''Today there is north Gaza and south Gaza,'' Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari told reporters, calling it a ''significant stage'' in Israel's war against the Hamas militant group ruling the enclave. Israeli media reported that troops were expected to enter Gaza City within 48 hours. Strong explosions were seen in northern Gaza after nightfall.

The ''collapse in connectivity'' across Gaza, reported by internet access advocacy group and confirmed by Palestinian telecom company Paltel, made it even more complicated to convey details of the new stage of the military offensive.
