Meta, the parent company of Facebook, has suspended the page of the Hamas-affiliated Quds News Network. On Saturday night, the publication’s Facebook page returned the error message: “This content isn’t available right now.”

“When this happens, it’s usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it’s been deleted,” per the page.

The organization continues to operate a page with 181,000 followers on Instagram (which Meta also owns) and a Twitter account with 185,500 followers.

Writing on Twitter on Saturday, the network condemned “Meta’s complete alignment with the Israeli occupation government and its continuous targeting and restriction of the Palestinian content.

“This has culminated in the removal of the English and Arabic pages of Quds News Network on Facebook, the largest Palestinian news page with over 10 million followers,” it claimed. “The network has been operating in both Arabic and English for over a decade across various social media platforms.”

Last year, the Australian Jewish Association referred to the network as “a notorious anti-Israel antisemitic propaganda platform affiliated with Hamas.”
