The Israeli ministers and Facebook officials have agreed to work together to determine “how to tackle incitement on the social media network,” according to the Israeli press
Palestine Center for Prisoners Studies said that Israeli authorities recently released a group of detained online activists on condition of not using social media for a limited period, in addition to imposing different fines and placing them under house arrest.
Since the beginning of 2015, 185 Palestinian activists including 30 women were detained for incitement to violence on social media. Last year, 120 activists were arrested under the same charge.
Over the past few days, two Israeli government ministers met top Facebook officials to discuss ways of collaboration between the two parties.
