This is the first known case of its kind where a government official or personnel has been suspended for posting anything related to the Israel-Hamas war that has broken out, intensifying the years old conflict between Israel and Palestine after Hamas terrorists attacked Israel in a well coordinated attack in Southern Israel, killing over 1,400 Israeli citizens and holding several Israelis hostage on October 7.

In retaliation, Israel has pounded Gaza resulting in the death of Hamas operatives and Palestinian citizens. Over 2,500 residents in Gaza strip were killed in the aerial assault by Israel after the October 7 attack by Hamas terrorist on its soil.
