“This is a war”: in Israel proposed to block social networks

News » Incidents

Israeli Police Chief Kobi Shabtai wants to block social networks in the country to reduce the number of unrest. He made such a statement in an interview with Yediot Aharonot. Shabtai stressed that no one expected such violence to erupt last year during Operation Wall Guardian. He believes that the influence of social networks such as TikTok is to blame. "Neither the police, nor the Shin Bet, nor the IDF — no one expected that there would be riots in mixed cities. The world of TikTok burst onto the scene like crazy, and along with what was happening in Gaza and the rockets fired at Jerusalem, it gave people the right to violence,” — he said. Shabtai suggested that the government block social networks so that they do not fan the “flames of violence”. “I am of the opinion that in such situations blocking of networks is necessary. This is a war”, — added Shabtai.
