Iraq has again experienced an exam-related Internet shutdown, the fourth such scheduled shutdown by the government since 1 June 2023.

Iraq shutdowns the whole internet of the country to prevent cheating on final exams
Iraq experienced a widespread #internet disruption that affected the entire nation.
