MOBILE SMS UNDELETABLE MESSAGES
The Information Ministry also warns citizens that messages are being sent to cell phones that cannot be deleted without typing the word “agree” and cause technical issues in the phone if they are rejected.
The Ministry affirmed that these messages are an attempt at political and media exploitation carried out by foreign sides known for their animosity towards Syria.

The Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said Monday that the situation in Syria in general is good and under control.
“Our situation in Syria in terms of the state, the leadership, the citizens, the army and the facilities is good and there will be nothing other than that,” al-Zoubi told a press conference Monday.
