The on-screen text in the video reads: "Facebook is fighting Palestinian content. Dozens of pages of journalists and activists have been shut down. A continuous effort to hide the truth in light of the Israeli plots. A violation of the freedom of expression that was guaranteed by the international agreements and charters.
"This is not the first attack on Palestinian content. Facebook is not the only site that is targeting Palestinian content. Twitter, Instagram, and WhatsApp do it, too. Facebook and the Israeli leadership take turns [doing this]."
