The management of the social networking site Facebook deleted, once again, en masse the pages which are loyal to Assad regime and its allies.

The en mass blocking included the pages of the Iranian al-Mayadeen TV, Hezbollah-owned al-Manar TV and the Assad-controlled Sama TV.

As Orient Net English scanned Facebook, we found out that they have disappeared from the most popular social networking site.

This was not the first time that Facebook had blocked these pages, a similar incident took place earlier this year.

Syrian activists say that this blocking came as a result of the provocative and sectarian roles these sites practice against Syrians, especially after Assad brutal massacres in Aleppo.
