According to the UN, all telecom services have been shut down owing to cuts in the key fiber links. On wednesday, the UN Secretary-General asked the UN Security Council to use its influence to stop "a humanitarian catastrophe" in Gaza.

Arab nations fine-tuning proposed UNSC resolution

Arab countries are fine-tuning a proposed UN Security Council resolution asking for a cease-fire in the two-month Israeli-Gaza conflict.

The Palestinian UN envoy, Riyad Mansour, said wednesday that the UN's most powerful council must demand an end to the conflict following the resumption of violence in Gaza following the conclusion of a weeklong humanitarian truce on december 1.

Surrounded by members of the 22-nation Arab Group, Mansour also informed reporters that a ministerial team from Arab nations and the 57-member Organisation of Islamic Cooperation will visit Washington on thursday to meet with US officials.

"On top of the agenda is this war has to stop," he went on to say. "A cease-fire has to take place and it has to take place immediately."

According to Mansour, US Vice President Kamala Harris' national security advisor phoned Palestinian President Mahmoud abbas on wednesday morning, and abbas urged for a swift cease-fire and greater humanitarian supplies.
