SMS Alternative Whatsapp is Blocked in Syria الواتساب مغلق في سوريا


A tweet from the official WhatsApp Twitter account has revealed that the messaging app has been blocked in Syria.

As Syria continues to crack down on activists in the country, President Bashar Al Asaad’s regime has been hard at work trying to cut off all forms of communication and information available to protesters. The suppressive tactics have been varied, with authorities raiding information centres and arresting its members, Syria’s main mobile operator censoring messages containing revolutionary keywords, and simply pulling the plug on the Internet altogether.
