'No place for terrorist organizations, aim is to protect public'; Musk takes tough action against Hamas

elon-musk

CALIFORNIA: Following the brutal attack by Hamas militants in Israel, hundreds of Hamas-affiliated accounts have been removed from the social media platform X. X, owned by Elon Musk, announced this by clarifying that there was no place for terrorist organizations. CEO Linda Yaccarino stated that X also has a mission to protect the public in times of emergency and to ensure that illegal content does not circulate through the platform. Terrorist organizations have no place in X. Linda also clarified that the accounts of those who support such terrorist organizations will be removed.

The move came in response to European Union's 24 hour-ultimatum to Elon Musk to tackle the spread of disinformation on X messaging platform since the Hamas assault to comply with new EU online content rules. The European Union is of the stand to block content that disturbs the peaceful life of people and the existence of society.

Meanwhile, reports are claiming that nearly 3,000 people were killed in the ongoing war. Israeli media reported that 3,000 Israelis were injured and 28 people were in critical condition. More than 150 Israelis have been held hostage by Hamas. However, it is not clear how many of them are alive.
