Israeli cabinet ministers on Wednesday requested Facebook to delete inciting posts against the country within 24 hours as part of its struggle to quell a nine-month Palestinian uprising.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked and Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan met visiting Facebook officials regarding the issue, Xinhua news agency reported.

The social media has been used as a primary tool for "inciting terror acts" during the recent wave of violence, officials said.

The meeting was part of a move to draft a new bill to remove "terror" content from social networking sites.

Under the bill, warnings will be sent to social media providers which host "forbidden content," including posts that encourage attacks against Israelis. If the providers do not remove the content, a court could issue a mandatory order to do so.
