Google tweeted Tuesday that all its services are inaccessible in Syria, where a bloody civil war is ongoing and Israeli airstrikes were conducted over the weekend.
Google  reports that Internet traffic from the beleaguered Middle Eastern nation suddenly stopped at about 11:45 a.m. Pacific Time.
Other traffic-monitoring services confirmed the outage. Renesys  also tweeted:
Renesys confirms loss of Syrian Internet connectivity 18:43 UTC. BGP routes down, inbound traces failing.
This isn’t the first time the country has fallen off the digital map in recent months. A similaroutage  last November lasted for two days.
