Syria Goes Dark, Sites Not Responding

It seems all of Syria has gone dark, no word on the reason, although the country is currently in the mists of a civil war. Renesys, a monitoring firm has confirmed that as of 10:26AM UTC, 92% of all traffic in and out of the country has been cut off. This has not been the first time the country has lost all connections, which have been carried out during major operations.

Akamai, another monitoring service has also confirmed that they too can not access any connections in the country. The only connections leaving the country come via activists, who are using  satellite phones to make contact with the outside world.
