Is IPFS perfectly censorship-resistant?

I was wondering how much censorship-resistance IPFS has. Sure, it can circumvent ISPs that manage DNS server and server hosting companies, but I don’t believe it could have helped people in Egypt in Arab Spring because their government had control of the cables going in and out of the country.

Were the computers in Egypt still able to communicate with each other? If so, then IPFS would have still been able to work within Egypt even if it couldn’t access nodes outside of the country.
