Monitor the Syrian Internet Blackout with RIPEstat


Syria was disconnected from the Internet on Thursday, 29 December at 10:26 UTC (12:26 local time in Damascus) when a vast majority of the country's Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routes were withdrawn.

We are closely monitoring the situation. At the time of publication, none of the RIPE NCC's 14 Syrian members had reachable IP addresses.

You can monitor the Internet blackout in Syria using RIPEstat's Syria Internet Monitor widget. The widget provides a near real-time feed of what BGP updates and withdrawals we see from any Syrian IP address space so you can detect when there are any signs of the country coming back online. You can also embed this widget on your own website.
