Hey, I'm thinking something that could be a total nonsense, but just in
case I would like to share my thougths.

This picture just popped up on Twitter. A long time ago there was a
picture taken from the official Tarassul Facebook pages that obviously
show the same devices in the same office -
https://resources.telecomix.ceops.eu/material/bluecoat-Syria/tarassul-datacenter.jpg

What if that second picture - the one that popped up today - had been
taken just recently by some opponent to the regime who managed to gain
access to the Tarassul technical office; that intrusion could have lead
the regime to do a kind of massive shutdown?

As I said, this might make no sense at all. But in a way, such a total
disruption, including the governmental/stock exchange/whatever websites
could be something the regime itself did not really want.
