Twitter shuts down accounts following Israeli pressure

Israel’s strategic affairs ministry has launched a new campaign targeting online expressions of support for Palestinian rights.

On Tuesday, 4IL – a propaganda outlet of the ministry – tweeted the handles of dozens of accounts it claimed were “anti-Israel bots and trolls who try to steer public opinion.”

“Report them right now,” the Israeli government urged.

The ministry also issued a report claiming it had “examined over 250 accounts, in which 70 percent of them (170) were found to be considered inauthentic.”

The report claims that the accounts were trying to “stir anti-Israel sentiment online and manipulate discourse against Israel” by, among other activities, promoting calls for Israel to be held accountable for war crimes at the International Criminal Court.
