Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Facebook administrations closed the page of Shehab News Agency on Tuesday for the fifth time.
The act comes as part of the social media giant’s repression against the Palestinian content. Shehab News Agency’s page had nearly 7.5 million followers.
Meanwhile, In a statement issued on Tuesday, Shehab News condemned the closure of their page and stressed that has not violated any of Facebook’s standards.
It added that Facebook has not been communicating with News agencies in the Middle East, especially in Palestine, which resulted in the accumulation of violations.
Facebook has closed several Palestinian pages and accounts without providing any reasons.
Last month, nearly 200 Facebook employees have signed an anonymous letter to company leadership, demanding a review of moderation systems they believe unfairly suppress content supportive of Palestinians.
Some staff have said that pro-Palestinian content was unfairly removed during the recent aggression on Gaza. Pro-Palestinian activists accused Facebook of censoring their posts during the Israeli aggression, and flooded the company’s App Store app with negative reviews.
