Syria appears to be cut off from internet access, according to reports from web monitoring groups. Google’s transparency report shows that access to its services has been cut off in the country since 22:00 local time on Tuesday. Similarly, web security group Umbrella Security Labs said in a blog post that “it seems Syria has largely disappeared from the Internet.” Internet connection monitor Renesys also confirmed the outage last night:

Syrian residents have confirmed that the internet is down to the BBC, but both landlines and mobile phones are still working.
Internet and mobile connectivity was shut down in November 2012.
