Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, is censoring coverage of Hamas' brutality in the name of their victims.
“This morning, we uploaded one of our videos to Facebook and Instagram,” Rebel News reporter Avi Yemini explains. “And instantly, Rebel News received a notification that it was banned for glorifying terrorism.”
The video in question, however, was not glorifying terrorism whatsoever. The opposite, in fact, as the video was condemning the terrorist organization for its brutal Oct. 7 attack against Israel.
“So our team did the right thing, they appealed thinking it was just a mistake,” Avi explains. A few hours later, Rebel News received a response from Meta.
