Google's Domain Name Service DNS has been intercepted by majority of Internet Service Providers ISPs in Turkey. Google’s Public DNS resolution service lets people use the search giant’s DNS servers as alternative to other DNS providers, often ISPs, for security and freedom from censorship. 
 According to Google’s Steven Carstensen, Turkish ISPs have set up servers that are essentially masquerading as Google’s DNS service. 
 “We have received several credible reports and confirmed with our own research that Google’s Domain Name System (DNS) service has been intercepted by most Turkish ISPs (Internet Service Providers),” Carstensen wrote in a blog post Saturday afternoon. “Google operates DNS servers because we believe that you should be able to quickly and securely make your way to whatever host you’re looking for, be it YouTube, Twitter, or any other,” Carstensen wrote. “But imagine if someone had changed out your phone book with another one, which looks pretty much the same as before, except that the listings for a few people showed the wrong phone number.” That’s exactly what the Turkish ISPs have done. 


 Turkish government has blocked both Twitter and YouTube a few days before. Sources claim that the government has blocked YouTube to prevent the spread of videos that allegedly feature the Turkish defense Minster and Intelligence chief talking about possible military invasion of Syria to protect the tomb of Suleiman Shah, the grandfather of the founder of the Ottoman Dynasty.
 Meanwhile, Defense Ministry Spokesman, Davutoglu told AFP on Wednesday "Turkey is ready to take any legitimate step under international law if its national security, including the area where the tomb of Suleyman Shah is situated, is threatened," Davutoglu told AFP on Wednesday.
