Syrian Flag FLICK

Syria's country-wide internet outage has been blamed on "terrorists" and a cable fault, but content delivery service and domain name provider CloudFlare's own investigation points to a very different cause. If the blackout were caused by a damaged cable, all four connections — three of which are underground — would have to be cut simultaneously, CloudFlare observes.
