Video-sharing platform TikTok has restricted the account of the new Palestinian terrorist group claiming responsibility for a host of recent attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians in the West Bank, the Lions’ Den.
The group, which has yet to reveal its political affiliation to any Palestinian faction, has been using its social media platforms to share propaganda and increase support.
As of Friday, a message stating that the Lions’ Den “violated Tik Tok’s guidelines and policy” appears when looking for their account on the app.
The Lions’ Den TikTok presence is part of a wider “TikTok Intifada,” as branded by some, in which Palestinian terrorists have begun spreading inciteful and violent messages to Palestinian youth across the West Bank, leading to an increase in terror attacks.
The Lions' Den's growing influence
On Friday, the Joint Chamber of Resistance Factions in Gaza singled out the Lions’ Den in a statement following the Palestinian factions meeting held earlier in the day.
In the statement, the factions called upon their “brothers, comrades, and our heroic fighters, especially the valiant Lions’ Den group... to respond to the occupation’s aggression in Jerusalem and on al-Aqsa.”
