Facebook kick hundreds of suspicious accounts, pages and groups from these three countries

Facebook deletes a number of accounts, pages and groups that indicate suspicious activity on Facebook and Instagram.

Quoting a caption on the Facebook Newsroom page, two separate operations were found; One comes from the United Arab Emirates and Egypt; Another one comes from Saudi Arabia.

These two operations are not connected to each other. However, both of them create a network of accounts to trick people into who they are and what they do.

 "We're constantly working to detect and stop this type of activity because we don't want our services to be used to manipulate people," says Facebook.

It is further mentioned that deleting an account, page, and group was done by referring to their activity, not on the content they published.

In each of these cases, Facebook says, the parties behind this activity coordinate with each other and  "use fake accounts to trick people and that's what is the basis for the company's actions."

Number of deleted accounts, pages and groups

The company claims to have removed 259 Facebook accounts, 102 Facebook pages, 5 Facebook groups, 4 Facebook events (events), and 17 Instagram accounts due to engaging in suspicious behaviors originating in the United Arab Emirates and Egypt.

They are focused on users in a number of countries, especially in the Middle East and some in north and East Africa, including Libya, Sudan, Comoros, Qatar, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Morocco.

In addition, the company also claims to have removed 217 Facebook accounts, 144 Facebook pages, 5 Facebook groups and 31 Instagram accounts involved in suspicious behaviors originating in Saudi Arabia.

They focus primarily on users in the Middle East and North Africa, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Morocco, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan.
