RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) arrested 150 Palestinians for their posts on Facebook and charged some of them with incitement against Israel and held others under administrative detention.
The Detainee and Ex-detainee committee said, in a statement on Saturday, that the Israeli government formed what is called “Arab Cyber Force” in the Israeli police for the purpose of chasing Palestinian social networks. The arrests were focused in Occupied Jerusalem in consistence with the Israeli policy of tightening the noose on Jerusalemite people.
The committee revealed that the Israeli penalty for expressing political opinions on Facebook is either dismissing captives from their work positions inside 1948 Occupied Palestine or deporting them outside of their neighborhoods. The committee considered such penalties as arbitrary confiscation of the right of expression.
