The SecDev's Syria Operations Group detected 60 of 67 net blocks returning  at 1600 hrs. local time. Connectivity is restored in most major cities and governorates with the exception of those with damaged infrastructure (see embedded map).  Circumvention systems are back online.

Sources in Syria suggest that the blackout may have been caused by a technical error rather than intentionally.
