     2=== Summary of the current situation ===
     3Short summary about current situation. [https://metrics.torproject.org/users.html?graph=direct-users&start=2012-10-01&end=2012-12-21&country=sy&events=off#direct-users Relays] as well as [https://metrics.torproject.org/users.html?graph=bridge-users&start=2012-09-22&end=2012-12-21&country=sy#bridge-users bridges] are blocked at this point.

     5=== First witnessed ===
     6The first reports of Tor being blocked emerged at December 16, 2012. It happened just a few days after the Internet was shut down in Syria. The downtime might have been used to deploy (new?) DPI boxes. The usage statistics suggest that the deployment happened immediately rather than incremental.

     8=== Last witnessed ===
     9The block still seems to be ongoing.

     11=== Types of Tor censorship ===
     12Almost nothing is known at this point. It is probably DPI given that the bridge usage dropped immediately. obfsproxy still works.

     14=== Ways to bypass censorship ===

     17=== Type of firewall ===
     18 * More information is needed.

     20=== Reproducing the blocking ===
     21 * More information is needed.
