Syria: Internet down – Disconnection across the Country

Various sources report that since today 12 o`clock GMT +1, the Internet and mobile phone network of all Syria were completely shut down. This does not only apply to SANA, the Syrian state news agency.

Indeed, Syrian contacts via Skype are no longer accessible; E-mails do not arrive to the receiver. It is clear that the thing was planned and coordinated

There are two ways of explaining it.

In Pakistan, for example, the government shuts down the mobile network in the cities every now and then in order to prevent mobile / radio controlled explosives from being detonated. Given the terror war against Syria, this could be a measure of the government.

If this is not the case, then it is clear that such an action is sure not manageable by any deserted brigadier general, because in such a case, very different levels would then be involved.

There were reports this morning about some problems at the Damascus airport. There are still some scheduled flights (last night, the Damascus – Moscow flight has arrived on time) but a number of cancellations have been reported.

Yesterday, there was even news about some attempts to break through from Lebanon, not by small groups but by much larger units. There were no reports about that today.

One must probably wait for further developments of this situation.


We are going to publish a more detailed article about this switch-off of the internet in Syria later.
