It is worth mentioning that the Vpalestine members are some activists on social media who are interested in refuting the Israeli propaganda and confronting the Zionist Khasbara.
The team also aims at shedding light on the Israeli violations, and exposing Israel’s real face to the whole world as well as supporting all defenders of the Palestinian cause.
