YouTube removes Israeli ads showing attacks on Israel, citing violent imagery

YouTube has removed Israeli government-sponsored ads on its platform that showed the results of Hamas’s attacks on Israel and stated that “Israel will protect its citizens against Hamas terrorism.”

The platform says the 15-second ads did not comply with its advertising policies.

“We have a company policy prohibiting advertisements with offensive content, including images of violence,” it says.
