Facebook Censors, Restores Video Accusing Israel of Using Palestinians to Test Weapons

A video accusing Israel of using Palestinians to test weapons and methods of repression that it later exports around the world was removed from Facebook for several hours and was only restored after complaints.

After it was posted on Facebook, however, the video was erased without explanation.

Several hours later, Facebook restored the video after some complaints, Khalek said.

This is not the first time that Facebook has censored pages and content critical of Israel.

Facing political pressure after the 2016 US presidential election, the social media giant has stepped up censorship across its platform, teaming up with the NATO-backed Atlantic Council. It has also often had to backtrack on decisions to suspend or remove content as mistakes, due to public pushback.
