Palestinian Media Watch drew attention to the clip last week. It reported on Monday that TikTok “responded immediately and removed the terror glorifying video,” while i24News added that the app also suspended the account the video was posted on.

The video, created as a computer animation, depicts four Palestinian acts of violence against Israeli citizens and soldiers: a 2014 car-ramming attack; a 2015 stabbing and 2016 drive-by attack in Jerusalem that each left two victims dead; and another 2015 stabbing in Jerusalem that resulted in injuries to three police officers.

The Arab attackers in the clip are compared to birds of prey descending on their targets as a heroic tune plays in the background.

The video was accompanied by a text in Arabic that said, “Jerusalem is the dread of the Jews,” followed by a red heart.
