Elon Musk has offered Starlink services to help aid organizations in the Gaza Strip.

He said the internet will provide communication links for aid organizations working in the war-torn area.

Musk Offers Starlink Internet For Aid Organizations in Gaza

The Israeli government has rejected Musk’s proposal to Gaza and said terrorists will use it for terrorism.

Cutting off all communication to a population of 2.2 million is unacceptable. Journalists, medical professionals, humanitarian efforts, and innocents are all endangered.

I do not know how such an act can be defended. The United States has historically denounced this practice. https://t.co/L9iV7TSs2u

Starlink To Start Working in Gaza

Elon Musk’s proposal came amid intense Israeli bombardment against Gaza.

He expressed his willingness over X, formerly Twitter, where he responded to a US lawmaker’s tweet about an internet blackout in Gaza.

Musk said he didn’t know who was responsible for ground links in Gaza.

In response, the Israeli government said they’d boycott the company if it provided Starlink to Gaza.

Israel’s Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi said insurgents inside Gaza will use it for terrorist activities.

“My office will cut any ties with Starlink,” the minister said.
