Another tweet from the state-run Syrian news agency says that the firm is working on to fix the issue and trying its level best to get the internet back as soon as possible. Although official reasons not being disclosed over the outage but Renesys believe that it might be because of an upcoming UN decision over Syria.
Let’s see now how much time this time it takes for the internet to get back on its toe completely.
