Residential buildings and public services have been destroyed in Israeli strikes - with internet and mobile services reduced to just one final line.

Israel continues to pound Gaza from the skies, striking on what the Israeli Air Force says is an "unprecedented scale".

Residential neighbourhoods have been reduced to rubble, with schools, hospitals and religious sites also impacted.

The Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project (ACLED) has charted 33 separate sites that have been bombarded, up to 12 October.

And satellite imagery shows the damage since then in more detail.

Beit Hanoun

Beit Hanoun is situated in Gaza`s northeast, not far from the Palestinian territory`s main border crossing with Israel.

The town has endured intense bombing since Israel launched its retaliatory strikes on Gaza. Satellite imagery captured on 14 October shows the area to the east of the city`s main thoroughfare severely damaged in the bombardment.

Gaza`s urban areas are largely made up of high-rise residential buildings - which is where the Israeli military says Hamas`s military arm operates.

Many of the destroyed buildings in Beit Hanoun appear to be residential. But satellite imagery shows that the blasts have landed close to the city`s main public services.

The yellow and orange highlights indicate where some of Beit Hanoun`s schools and its sole hospital are located.

Large craters can be seen in the fields opposite some of these locations, with damage to a nearby roundabout also visible.

A spokesperson for Gaza`s health ministry confirmed on Saturday that the hospital had been severely damaged in the bombardment and can no longer operate.

Rimal, Gaza City

The Rimal area of Gaza City has also sustained significant damage in the strikes. Satellite imagery captured on 11 October shows the aftermath of bombing in the built-up neighbourhood.

Move the marker below to see how the area has been impacted by the bombardment.

Like in Beit Hanoun, entire residential complexes in Rimal have been levelled, and aerial pictures reveal just how close these bombs have landed to schools and hospitals.

The below image shows a major blast area adjacent to Rimal`s Mustafa Hafez school.

Nuseirat camp

The Nuseirat refugee camp also sustained damage in Israeli strikes. Drone footage shows the destruction a few streets away from the city`s cemetery.

But it`s not just residential areas and public services that have been affected by the bombing. Key parts of the entire territory`s infrastructure have been severed.

Data from the internet monitoring service NetBlocks shows that nine key local Internet Service Providers in the Gaza Strip are at zero or close to zero connectivity as a result of attacks on infrastructure over the past week.

The UN has reported that mobile communication lines have been targeted in airstrikes, with two of the three main lines completely destroyed.

Gaza residents are now relying on just one line for mobile and internet communications, resulting in severe disruptions to services.

Internet connectivity is down to 56% overall across the Gaza Strip, however some areas are more affected than others; the Deir al-Balah Governorate is now down to 36% connectivity.

The last remaining service provider, Paltel, say they anticipate a total blackout of services if any further international routes are damaged.

Essential supplies of water, food and medicine are also depleted as Israel`s blockade of Gaza enters its second week.
