[liberationtech] Internet off in Syria?

I'd say loss of power or something similar. I don't think they have
reliable generators. Wasn't Damascus without power for most of yesterday?
Or it could be an actual technical error within STE, everyone feeds to STE
before it heads overseas.

 What type of technical error could have caused this?

 Thx

 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.

I see a few machines from Syrian Computer Society are accessible.

Hi all,

It seems connectivity is slowly returning to Syria. I noticed some
connections from MTN-SYRIA to my server.
Sincerely,

Walid

Hi Brian, Tiago and other friends,

I can confirm that users from Syria have stopped using my Alkasir
servers for accessing the Internet since yesterday at noon. Looking at
my records, it appears it stopped totally after noticing a decline in
the number of connections in recent days. It appears that what we feared
would happen has just happened.

Let's keep monitoring to see if any are able to get online from Syria.


My DNS server traffic from Syria also dropped to zero.

Some people have been working overnight to try to see if landlines still
work in some cities, to see if dialup can be used.

Info has been gathered there: https://pad.hacktivist.me/p/landlines


Best,
KheOps
