Twitter shut down another account used by the Hamas terrorist organization on Friday, April 15, sparking outrage and condemnations from from Hamas’ military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades.

The account belonged to the military wing’s  spokesperson, Abu Ubaida, who opened the current account following the closure of Al-Qassam Brigades’ Arabic, English and Hebrew language accounts back in February.

Twitter chose to side with the occupation, which refutes its claims of honesty and impartiality.” stated Abu Ubaida on Saturday.

“We condemn the use of Twitter to promote terrorism and the Twitter rules make it clear that this type of behavior, or any violent threat, is not permitted on our service,” Twitter wrote in a February statement.

Twitter had previously shut down the Al-Qassam Arabic and English-language accounts in March, following “pressure exerted by Zionist groups,” said the former manager of the Al-Qassam account in a statement on the terror group’s website.

The moves against Hamas comes amid Twitter’s ongoing campaign against the spread of Islamic extremism, during which approximately 125,000 accounts linked to terrorists have been suspended since mid-2015, Twitter states on its website.

Hamas and its military wing are both designated as illegal terrorist groups by Israel, the European Union, and the United States.
