Syrian airport reopens as clashes, Internet and phone blackout continue
“We are sure they are preparing dirty games. We don’t know exactly what because it will be a military operation,” said Fadel Abdul Ghani, 36, founder of the Syrian Network for Human Rights, speaking via Skype from Damascus. “When they cut the Internet in Homs before, there was a big massacre.”
Abdul Ghani, like some other human rights workers, activists and fighters in the country, was able to keep his channels of communication open by using a satellite phone. But gathering information had become markedly more difficult since the blackout began, he said.
