Israel responds to Musk's decision to give Gaza internet access
Israel will terminate its cooperation with Elon Musk's Starlink project
Israeli Communications Minister, Shlomo Karhi, shared this news via X (Twitter).
Israel's decision to end cooperation with Starlink comes after Elon Musk announced that the satellite service would offer communication support to humanitarian organizations operating in the Gaza Strip.
According to the Israeli Communications Minister, "Israel will use all means at its disposal to fight this. HAMAS will use it for terrorist activities. There is no doubt about it, we know it, and Musk knows it. HAMAS is ISIS. Perhaps Musk would be willing to condition it with the release of our abducted babies, sons, daughters, elderly people. All of them! By then, my office will cut all ties with Starlink."
On October 28th, Elon Musk revealed that Starlink would provide connectivity to internationally recognized humanitarian organizations serving the Gaza Strip.
