Internet Is Being Throttled In Beirut To Stop Coverage Of Ongoing Mass Protests!

If you’re experiencing some poor internet connection from Beirut, you’re not alone. Several people have complained of the same thing, especially from the center of the revolution square.

During the live coverage of the protest in Beirut, Al-Jadeed’s correspondent said the team was facing an extremely poor internet connection – and they believe it’s being weakened on purpose.

Four days after the devastating disaster, the government is still taking measures to suppress and contain the revolution of angry people who are sick of what they reckon as “murderous politicians”.

The security forces are using force to kill the revolution, including tear gas and rubber bullets, and now even cutting internet connection to interfere with coverage of the protest.

But the protesters, some who have lost almost everything, friends, family members, and even their homes, are not backing down.
