Israel’s anti-racism law will be enforced on Wednesday, a day after it was extended to include social media sites.
The law requires sites and apps to disclose information about their advertisers, but does not require them to remove any posts, posts or comments related to racist or anti-Semitic content.
The measure was introduced in February after a wave of deadly attacks against Israelis by Palestinians and right-wing extremists.
It has prompted some companies to cancel advertising on some of Israel’s biggest websites and Facebook and Twitter have said they will no longer feature the site.
“The state has a duty to protect the public’s right to express their views, and we are committed to doing this,” the ministry of defense said in a statement.
The measures come a day before Israel holds its annual Arab festival of lights, when the government plans to host hundreds of thousands of Jews from around the world.
Israel has the world’s highest Jewish population of about 14 million, according to the Israeli government.
