Turkey blocks access to YouTube and social networks due to events in Syria


The blocking of social networks in Turkey is due to the death of the military of this country in the Syrian province of Idlib. Restrictions affected the WhatsApp messenger, social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as YouTube video hosting.


The international monitoring organization NetBlocks claims that the reason was the spread on the Internet of inaccurate information about the number of dead and injured as a result of an air strike on the Turkish military in Idlib. We are talking about yesterday’s tragic events in Syria, which led to the deaths of several dozen military personnel.

The Turkish newspaper Haberturk reports that the provider Turk Telekom and some others have imposed restrictions on users of social networks Instagram, Twitter, Faceboock and the WhatsApp messenger. According to the publication Dirilis Postasi, access to YouTube is also limited.
Although the restrictions in the Turkish segment of the Internet really apply, no official information about this has appeared.

Official Turkish sources say that 33 people died and 36 soldiers were injured during an air attack on Turkish positions in the Syrian province of Idlib. To discuss the incident, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan convened a security meeting, which was also attended by the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the heads of law enforcement agencies.

      I can imagine now what nervous state our sailors are in. It is not known what to expect from Edik who came off the coils, being in the enemy environment.

        Syria now has 1 more Frigate i.e. there will be 3 pr.11356 + minimum 2 diesel-electric submarines pr.636.6
        it is already a salvo of 5 x 5 = 25 Caliber. Malova something like that.
        It’s better to use the Su-24, Su-34 and Su-25 attack aircraft

          On frigates 11356 8 cells for missiles. If we assume that they are all with calibers, then it turns out to be 24. And on Varshavyanka there are 4 Caliber. Plus 8 more. Total 32 in one salvo.
          Still not enough. Enough for just a couple of airfields. And after that the ship remains naked. There is nothing and nowhere to charge it.
          Maybe at least this situation will encourage our admirals to create large numbers of cruise missile carriers? I have long said that there is nothing better than remaking the Shark submarine (2 of which are removed from the fleet and stupidly stand at the pier) into such carriers. 100 calibers on one ship would be. This is already something.

            Alexander,
            not the entire ammunition is fired, at least 3 PLUR / RCC will be left for combat stability of the ship
            and at Varshavyanki there were already launches of 5 SLCMs with one diesel-electric submarine

              In my opinion, there are more benefits from Varshavyank. You can load Caliber more and when they run out of space to quickly hide and rinse off. Yes, and decide for themselves what kit to prepare for launch, and what to send to shelves. (anyway, on a nuclear submarine like that). The frigate will have to have anti-ship missiles to fight back. In this case, the number of calibers is reduced. And most importantly - you can recharge only in the database. I’m not sure that in Tartus the Caliber was delivered in the right quantity.

        The hostile environment of Edik, primarily among his own. The political situation in Turkey is very tense. And Erdogan is far from Ataturk.

    Turkey blocks access to YouTube and social networks
    That's right!
    All sorts of "tips", such as get, they do not need a fuck.
    That's what the “sovereign internet” does!
    And to "well-wishers" - a pichalka.

      For filing a one-sided “only right” opinion. The centers for combating propaganda in Europe have set up for the same purpose - censorship and promotion of their interests, but for working on the Internet without cardinal isolation.

    this is precisely what they fear. and people somehow recognize TK. in Germany no one has blocked anything and a huge number of Turks live here, and of those whom I personally know no one was flattering about Edik and his politics, they would even be glad if Edik had been thrown off at one time from the throne

    Ah, all you need is winked ... call Putin.
    No, after all, everything is along, and to Erdogan - across ... Now he is cramming in, everyone will be too sick, and ... he will call Putin

        Everything is correct. A practical stretch is already the result of a preliminary study of the issue and consolidation of the results: by signature, shaking hands ... And, look into the eyes, this is ... Zelensky

    It is not clear what in this situation gives a blocking of social networks ?!

    Isn't it better to give official information than to escalate the situation by blocking the Internet, which will further increase rumors and panic ?!

    Judging by the fact that there is no “new Russian aggression” in the Western media, the erudogan’s militancy will begin to deflate. They don’t like blackmailers everywhere, especially in interstate relations.

    Official Turkish sources claim that 33 people died and 36 soldiers were injured during an air raid on Turkish positions in the Syrian province of Idlib.
    This hour, it seems, they say about 57-200
