There will be multiple lines out, pretty much all voice comms these days is digital and thus normally gets routed via tcp/ip or udp packets so as long as something can get out it will do and the internet was designed to be resilient.
Probably also both sides don't want to seriously mess with the comms infrastructure if possible and theres satellite links as well which while expensive are pretty much un blockable.
As for quality of the pictures/movies they'll probably be pre-recorded and transmitted.

The people reporting from Syria in large are not the citizens of Syria, but rather individuals and/or organizations that have satellite communication methods rather than relay towers.
That being said you will basically never ever get a true journalistic impression of ground zero in Syria.
Residents of opposition-held east Aleppo received a stark warning from the regime via text message on Sunday morning, warning them to leave within 24 hours.
“Notice to all gunmen,” reads the message sent on MTN, one of Syria’s two mobile phone networks. “You have 24 hours to get your injured out of East Aleppo, and to leave yourselves.”
