An Israeli army bulldozer has damaged a communications cable and cut all phone and Internet networks in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, Palestinian officials said on Wednesday.

The blackout was caused late on Tuesday by a military bulldozer operating in Nahal Oz, close to the Palestinian enclave, Hamas telecommunications officials told AFP.

"Repairs have allowed the gradual resumption of communications," they said.

An Israeli military spokesman denied the army was "responsible for the incident," but added that it was willing to "help restore communications."
