Entire neighborhoods have been disconnected from Bezeq telephone and internet service for nearly two months in the city of Tira, after a car rammed into a local infrastructure point at the beginning of April, Army Radio reported on Monday.

Asked for an explanation about the length of time the problem has persisted, Tira's municipality blamed the telephone company, and Bezek responded that "fixing the problem requires many bureaucratic approvals, among them, the road where the accident took place needs to be closed," according to Army Radio.
