Two young residents of east Jerusalem were arrested after posting videos containing threats and encouragement of violence and terrorism on TikTok, an Israel Police Spokesperson announced on Wednesday.
The two suspects, aged 17 and 22, were seen in the videos praising "martyrs" and inciting terror attacks.
They were recorded as saying, among other statements: "For God, we will live and die until liberation, how great for the mother of a martyr."
Following the monitoring of the videos that were published online, detectives of the Jerusalem District's crime-fighting unit Merhav Kedem arrested the suspects.
They were transferred to the investigation headquarters of the Jerusalem District, which was established in preparation of the month of Ramadan to monitor online incitement and violence.
The police noted that efforts to spread material inciting residents of Jerusalem to violence, including rumors and disinformation concerning holy sites, intensify during Ramadan every year.
Police will operate to prevent violence during Ramadan
During Ramadan, the police will operate a "police awareness" headquarters which will include intelligence and investigative measures in order to conduct enhanced monitoring of incitement and violence online in coordination with forces on the ground.
