Palestinians and Pro-Palestine activists
flocked outraged to Twitter yesterday as it appeared Palestine was removed from both Google and Apple maps. The activists have used the platform to express their concern as the country was being “erased”!

The move comes while Israel President Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged to annex parts of the occupied West Bank.
The threat has triggered global criticism with many countries calling it ‘human rights violation’.

Palestine is recognized as an independent state by 138 members of the United states.

“Denying Palestinians their identity, their sovereignty, their human rights, even erasing the name of their motherland from maps, is surely ethnic cleansing.”
