We received a report that there is a loss of connectivity with Syria.   The report claims that 90% of the Syrian prefixes disappeared from the BGP  tables between 13:32 and 14:13 (UTC) earlier today (2012-07-19).    If you have more information please comment or send a note to handler@isc.sans.edu

Thanks to NANOG
