Meta, the parent company of Instagram, removed the accounts of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei for violating its policy on dangerous organizations and individuals.

This action followed pressure from pro-Israel groups due to Khamenei’s support of the terrorist group Hamas and its attack on Israel.

“We have removed these accounts for repeatedly violating our Dangerous Organizations & Individuals policy,” a Meta spokesperson stated.

Iran has denied involvement in the attack, but the U.S. and others have cited Iran’s financial support of terrorist groups in the Middle East.

Khamenei praised the attack on Israel, and Meta established a special operations center to enforce misinformation and police violent posts related to the conflict.

“We kiss the hands of those who planned the attack on the Zionist regime. This destructive earthquake has destroyed some critical structures (in Israel) which will not be repaired easily,” Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said. “The Zionist regime’s own actions are to blame for this disaster.”

Khamenei had over 5.1 million followers on his Persian-language account and more than 204,000 followers on his English-language account.
