We have reports that Jawahl telephone service may have to shut down soon due to the electricity problem. If this happens we, and Palestinians, will have little way to contact emergency services, each other, or the outside world. If you want to interview us, phone now and keep trying til you get on.
We also understand that the Israeli army may attempt to partition and isolate sections of Gaza from each other, as it has with the West Bank. I and several colleagues will head back to Jabalia tonight to continue to ride with medical workers, others are in other areas. If this shutdown occurs we may no longer be able to access internet to make reports. The best (though not great) chance of getting information will then be via ISM in the West Bank, please check the website for the latest info.
(I am working on last night’s report now to be posted in the next hours.)
