Laut Edward Snowden trennte die NSA im Jahr 2012 versehentlich Syrien vom Internet :

NSA hackers—had attempted in 2012 to remotely install an exploit in one of the core routers at a major Internet service provider in Syria , which was in the midst of a prolonged civil war. This would have given the NSA access to email and other Internet traffic from much of the country. But something went wrong, and the router was bricked instead —rendered totally inoperable. The failure of this router caused Syria to suddenly lose all connection to the Internet

Aber was berichteten eigentlich die Medien damals?
