A spokesperson for Hamas' military wing had his Twitter account shut down once again on Saturday.

Abu Obeida, spokesperson for the Qassam Brigades, said  in response to the action  through a new account established on the social media platform:  “Twitter yielded to the pressure of the enemy, which gives us an impression that is not neutral in regards to the Palestinian case and it caves into political pressure.”

On Friday, Twitter shut down Obeida Twitter account as part of a two-year effort to prevent terror organizations from disseminating their messages through their website.
