"The website listed in that article is not active on our network," a spokesman for PrivateSystems said by email. "We don't tolerate websites like that and act promptly if/when it occurs."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State said it has provided 2,000 communications kits to Syrian residents. The kits include cameras, phones and computers "designed to be independent from and able to circumvent the Syrian domestic network," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Thursday in a press briefing.
