Not sure about the credibility of that Twitter account, but some things do seem to line up. If it's true, the whole situation is very concerning and could be tied to the escalation in tensions. They claim that the reason for this cut is twofold: 1. To protect the Russian base in Tartus, and 2. As retaliation for the US cutting a network line to Lebanon:

Little reading in between the lines does turn up quite a bit of complaining about slow and unavailable Internet in Lebanon: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&ver ... w&src=typd

Something to watch, at least.

Looks pretty biased (based off profile pic lol) but I wouldn't really doubt the information. Guess it's a watch-and-see thing for right now.

Haha, yeah, my thoughts too, but there could still be a kernel of truth somewhere in there.

SitRep shouldn't really be for discussing why something happened, only that it happened and how it can affect US assets and allies imo. Just an opinion, nothing more, nothing less. ;)

Don't want to sidetrack too much, but I agree 100%. That's why I waited to share until I could gather some circumstantial evidence for the claims, especially as we've been following that ship's progress over the underseas cables.

For some content, the UK treasury is claiming that the RT account freeze is not due to any Treasury action and strictly on the part of the bank:
