Two Palestinian media pages shut down by Facebook
(MENAFN) Two Palestinians pages; the committee of families of political captives in the West Bank, which is concerned with following up the news of Palestinian detainees in Palestinian Authority (PA) jails, and the official page of al-Resalah media institution, have been shut down by Facebook administration.
The prisoners' families committee said, in a statement, that their page was specialized in documenting the violations practiced by the PA security forces against Palestinians in the West Bank. A new page has been created under the theme "Return Political Detainees in the West Bank", the statement pointed out.
Meanwhile, al-Resalah administration condemned the unfair Facebook procedure against their page and confirmed that they have the right to cover the crimes of the Israeli occupation and vowed to continue their work despite harassment.
According to the Palestinian Media Assembly, Facebook administration has closed 60 Palestinian accounts and blocked over 100 others for sharing photos and posts about Palestinian martyrs since the beginning of the year.
In 2017, over 200 Palestinian accounts and pages were deleted for the same reason, the Palestinian Media Assembly pointed out.
