In response to criticism and outrage by supporters, the video-sharing website YouTube reactivated a video channel operated by Israeli NGO Palestinian Media Watch on Monday.

The website removed PMW's video channel from its servers on Sunday for "severe violations" of YouTube’s community guidelines.

The channel, which featured videos of Palestinian incitement against Jews and Israelis, posted by the group in order to expose Arab media undercurrents, was accused of repeatedly airing hate speech.

PMW director Itamar Marcus said he had received an automatically generated letter from YouTube informing him that the channel had been removed following complaints by YouTube users.

"YouTube has removed some of our videos in the past, but closing down the site is a tremendous disservice," said Marcus.
