BREAKING: Syrian Authorities Shut Down the Internet in the Country

3 Jun, 2011

Amid growing protests in most syrian cities against the regime of Bashar al Asad, Syrian authorities have shut down the Internet in the country, sources told ArabCrunch.

You can look at Google Transparency Report where you see a drop in traffic to all google services up to zero.

We do not know what are the exact reason behind shutting down the Internet in Syria now. The internet has been used by activists to disseminate youtube videos about demonstrations and human right violations by the Syrian police. Twitter and Facebook are also used to rally and organize protests.

Before he was toppled the regime of Husni Mubarak shut down the internet too.
