Most of the internet users expressed their anger from the
service due to internet outage. Two days ago, the internet service in Lebanon encountered
an outage due to maintenance procedures. On Wednesday, the service was also
interrupted, but this time due to lack of maintenance.
In this context, Telecommunications Minister Nicolas
Sehnaoui told LBCI that the internet jam is caused by the disruption of a cable
in the sea off Alexandria beach, where this cable passes by India, Pakistan,
United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and Egypt and through the
Mediterranean Sea it arrives to Lebanon.
Sehnaoui stressed that coordination is ongoing with Cyprus
and Egypt to find an alternative solution to provide the citizens with the internet
Sehnaoui called on all parties to stay away from debates,
noting that there are any responsibilities to be assumed currently.
