By Palestine Chronicle Staff  

Gaza has experienced possibly its most difficult night since the start of the Israeli war on the Strip on October 7. Scores of Palestinians, dead and wounded, arrived at various hospitals throughout the Gaza Strip.

What complicates the work of these hospitals however is the fact that many of these casualties cannot be retrieved since Israel has shut down internet and telephone lines and any form of communication within Gaza, and between Gaza and the outside world.
