Yesterday 29 November 2012, between 1026 and 1029 (UTC), all traffic from Syria to the rest of the Internet stopped.

The Syrian government and Rebels have been blamed for the shutdown of internet and telecommunication services in its territory on Thursday. The tussle in between the Syrian rebels and the forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad just outside Damascus resulted in cutting the access to its international airport, and the telecommunication lines.

Reuters quotes, “The Internet and some telephone lines went down across Syria. Rebels and the government traded blame for the blackout, the worst communications outage in 20 months of conflict.”
