NGO documents 111 violations against Palestinian content in July

Sada Social Center, a Palestinian digital rights organization, said in a statement today it has documented 111 violations against Palestinian content by international social media platforms during July 2021.

The Sada Social Center team documented more than 111 violations during July: 50 violations by Twitter, another 50 by Facebook and an additional 11 violations by Instagram.

These violations, according to the center, varied between complete ban and suspension of some features, complete closure of accounts and pages, and the restriction of publications and lowering reach levels.

The social media platforms deleted publications and stories, restricted accounts, and banned live broadcasts for a number of Palestinian journalists and activists, in conjunction with the intensity of publishing the Israeli occupation’s assault on Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque and the aggression on Gaza.

Twitter removed hundreds of Palestinian and Arab accounts after tweeting and posting in solidarity with Palestine, and the most prominent of which was the limitation of hashtags and posts published about the Sheikh Jarrah and Silwan neighborhoods in Jerusalem, and others about the crimes of the Israeli occupation and the Palestinian narrative in Gaza.
