"Residents said businesses and daily life were at a standstill as people tried to understand what was happening. Some of them were, however, able to connect to the internet as it operates under a different network, reports say."

I think this was no accident to cut the mobile and communication lines. It may be an attempt to isolate and catch the leader. No communication would surely limit ISIS in their strength and make it easier to attempt an operation to catch this guy. Hope US succeed in catching this nut job.
