Iran blocks SpaceX Starlink website after Elon Musk turns internet on for Iranians

Update, it was reported that Iran International tagged the Twitter account @SpaceXStarlink which is a commentary account and not affiliated with SpaceX.

We contacted Iran International via Twitter asking if they meant SpaceX Starlink or that particular Twitter account.

Update: Iran International has confirmed that it was the Starlink website that was blocked.

Iranian government blocked SpaceX’s Starlink website following Elon Musk’s response to enable Starlink for Iranians, Iran International said on Twitter. Yesterday, Elon Musk announced he was activating Starlink in response to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s tweet announcing that a blanket license to provide internet to the people of Iran had been issued.

The Iranian government is trying to stop the massive protests that culminated in the murder of an innocent young woman, Mahsa Amini, who died while in the hands of the National Vice Police. She was arrested for not wearing her headscarf properly.

According to the vice squad, she died of cardiac arrest. However, eyewitnesses saw them beat her and her head hit the side of a police car. Leaked medical scans also suggested she had suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and stroke.

The Persian news site noted that Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the US Treasury’s issuance of a blanket license to support internet freedom in Iran was an effort to “violate the sovereignty of Iran” and that it will not go unanswered.

In addition to the Starlink site, the religiously extremist government blocked its own citizens access to LinkedIn and used satellite jamming technology prevent citizens from watching Iran International own chain. The news site noted that signal jamming has extremely harmful effects on people’s health.

Along with Elon Musk, Starlink and other members of the international community, Iranian Prince-in-Exile Reza Pahlavi also supports Iranian citizens. He told members of the Iranian military,

“You have sworn to defend your people and your territory. People say they don’t want revenge on you army members. Come join us and protect people from our inner enemy.

As this unfolds, we will continue to update you on Starlink and its impact on Iran.
