Hezbollah said Saturday via Telegram that its Facebook and Twitter accounts have been shutdown without notice, informing its social media followers that backup and new social media pages were available for use.
According to Hezbollah, Facebook and Twitter closed its accounts as part of their efforts to harm the Lebanese organization since social media plays a major role in Hezbollah's activities.
This is not the first time Facebook and Twitter have pulled the plug on Hezbollah's accounts. The same Fcebook page was blocked at the end of 2017 and was later reopened.
Facebook and Twitter have so far not issued a statement on the matter.
