Facebook Shuts Down Hamas-linked Network
In “Palestine,” Facebook removed 141 accounts, 79 Pages, 13 Groups and 21 Instagram accounts.
Facebook has removed four networks from “Palestine,” Poland, Belarus, and China during November for violating its policy on Coordinated Inauthentic Behavior (CIB), including a Hamas-linked network, the social media company stated Wednesday.
“Each of these networks targeted people in multiple countries at once,” Facebook noted.
In “Palestine,” Facebook removed 141 accounts, 79 Pages, 13 Groups and 21 Instagram accounts operating from the Gaza Strip that primarily targeted “people in Palestine, and to a much lesser extent in Egypt and Israel.”
“We found this activity as part of our internal investigation into suspected coordinated inauthentic behavior in the region and linked it to Hamas,” Facebook explained.
CIB refers to inauthentic accounts run by nefarious individuals pretending to be something they are not in order to deceive their followers and audience, or automated accounts, bots, developed to behave as humanly as possible with the intent to deceive social media users.
Hamas uses social media to spread disinformation and promote terrorism.
