Hamas has said the Israeli regime has cut off the Gaza Strip's communications with outside while intensifying its attacks against the Palestinian territory, saying the regime is preparing to commit more genocide against the coastal sliver away from the eyes of the world.

The Palestinian resistance movement made the remarks in a press statement on Friday.

"Cutting off communications and the Internet from the Gaza Strip, and escalating the bombardment, by land, sea and air, on residential neighborhoods; It warns of the occupation’s intention to commit more massacres and genocides away from the eyes of the press and the world," the statement read.

The regime has been waging a relentless war against Gaza since October 7, when Hamas and its fellow Gaza-based resistance movement of the Islamic Jihad launched their biggest operation against the occupying entity in years. The surprise Palestinian offensive, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, came in response to the regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.

The death toll in Gaza since the start of Israeli aggression has reached over 7,400 with more than 20,500 wounded.

"We hold the occupation, Washington, and the Western capitals that supported it fully responsible for the series of heinous massacres and their repercussions," the Hamas statement added.

The United States and Israel's other Western allies have defended the Israeli regime's unbridled bloodletting in Gaza as a means of "self-defense."

Hamas, however, described the hugely deadly aggression as a "war of extermination."

The movement, affirmed, though, that the Palestinian people "will not be intimidated by these fascist policies..."

"Their valiant resistance will not stop the revolution and struggle until they repel this barbaric aggression, defeat the occupation from our land and our holy sites, and exercise our right to freedom and self-determination, by establishing the Palestinian state with [the holy occupied city of] al-Quds as its capital...".
