Meta, the parent company of Instagram and Facebook, has taken action against accounts affiliated with Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Following criticism over Khamenei’s support for Hamas, especially after their October 7 attack on Israel, Meta confirmed the removal of these accounts on Friday.

Meta Removes Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's Social Media Accounts for Violating Policy

The decision, based on Meta’s Dangerous Organizations and Individuals policy, comes as a response to repeated violations. This policy prohibits organizations or individuals with a violent mission or engaged in violence from having a presence on Meta’s platforms, including those designated as terrorists by the US government.

Meta, headquartered in Menlo Park, California, did not provide specific details about the reasoning behind the removal. However, the move reflects the company’s commitment to enforcing its policies and maintaining a safe online environment.
