Syrian condition YouTube channels have been shut down this early morning just as the Syrian Army’s ground offensive has formally begun.
This includes the following now terminated Syrian condition and pro-govt channels: Syrian Presidency, Syria MoD (Ministry of Protection), SANA, and Sama Tv set. This follows YouTube reportedly closing Syria’s Ortas News last 7 days.
It is unclear no matter whether or not the action is part of a broader transfer between US social media companies to shut “Iran-linked” accounts, or if instantly linked to occasions now rapidly unfolding in Idlib.
A selection of Syria observers say the account closures could be linked with possible US programs for armed service action in reaction to the Syria-Russian forces air and ground attack on Idlib.
This news comes just as CENTCOM chief Gen. Joseph Dunford explained on Saturday the Pentagon is getting ready “armed forces choices” and is in “routine dialogue” with the White House concerning a opportunity military response.
