It’s a little freaky to think that something like this can happen so easily… Basically three of the four cables that run below the ocean between Europe, the Middle East and Asia have snapped.
Communication with the Middle East is already difficult in the present state and the disruption may bring massive losses to businesses, but if the fourth one happened to break then we would face a complete blackout on communication with the Middle East.
The cables should be fixed in a few days, but it’s still pretty freaky…
