Just like Egypt, Syria too is said to have made some similar moves in an attempt to stop the rebellious voices coming up. Syria too has reportedly blocked the internet on the same day as on Egypt.
The Arabic-language website Al Arabiya has announced that the country too has decided to and by now suspended all the internet services being provided to the people. Some two programs which had been earlier suspended in the year 2007, as they provided access to Facebook have one again been banned, as per sources.
Although the country has always been known for imposing restrictions on people and the media coverage of poverty and corruption but this is in fact the first time that something as big as disruption of internet service has taken place.
A Government representative has reportedly denied all claims of the internet slowing down in Syria. Also many people accessing twitter from Syria have said that they are not experiencing any problems with the internet. On the other hand however reports from Egypt have confirmed the blocked access to Twitter and the internet altogether.
These attempts are being made to silence the escalating protests against the regime of President Hosni Mubar
