The official Telegram channels of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terrorist organizations were blocked this week on all devices using Apple’s iOS.

The channels were the main propaganda outlets of the U.S.-designated terrorist groups, which used Telegram to share videos of kidnappings and killings of Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.

Apple’s decision came after a U.S.-based NGO, the Zachor Legal Institute, approached it with a request to block the channels.

Google has taken a similar action on its Android devices, blocking two Hamas channels and the three PIJ and PFLP channels as well.

In October, Apple and Google took similar action against Hamas propaganda channels.
