Facebook Sued for $1 Billion Over ‘Terror Platform’

Israeli and American families of victims of Palestinian attacks filed a $1 billion lawsuit against Facebook, claiming the social network is providing a platform for militants to spread incitement and violence, their lawyers said Monday.

“Simply put, Hamas uses Facebook as a tool for engaging in terrorism,” it said.
