Satellite internet service has been disrupted in Yemen due to the recent airstrikes launched by Saudi-led coalition warplanes on the international communications company TeleYemen in the capital Sana’a.
Exchange companies and banks said the service had stopped, and that they were unable to use satellite internet, which was the only means they had left after ground internet connection had already previously been cut off due to airstrikes.
According to NetBlocks, a network monitoring organisation around the world, satellite internet service has been suspended in Yemen, and international communications have collapsed following an air attack by the Saudi-led coalition on service provider TeleYemen in Sana’a.
