Social media is to blame for the recent spate of Palestinian-related violence, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated at a Likud faction meeting on Monday.

According to him, Facebook in particular, largely contributed to the violence that occurred in the past few weeks.

"What has been going on is due to the combination of the Internet and Islamist extremism," Netanyahu said. "It has been Osama bin Laden meets [Facebook founder] Mark Zuckerberg."
