He asserted that the removal was not based on the content that was shared by these pages and groups

we remove them because of their coordinated inauthentic

Can someone help me out here? What exactly is "coordinated inauthentic behavior" and why is it that the content shared is not the reason of account/group suspension? I mean it makes sense if someone spreads content which happens to be false information.

Thanks for the alternative source; I have trouble trusting RT (and Daily Mail etc.) so hearing it from such an unrelated source is important. Interestingly, the India Times article says it was from Pakistan, unlike RT which seems like it wants to blame Israel. The geopolitics of the situation's going over my head.

The "coordinated inauthentic behaviour" is probably a sockpuppet army.

Times of India, The Hindu - these two newspapers are the most reliable and unbiased english news outlets in India. The Indian Express is also decent and can be trusted. Among the international ones, BBC and Reuters are the most reliable.

PS: I've never heard of RT.

RT, or Russia Today, is a rather shady "source" of information. It promotes some really interesting, insightful stories, and also some blatant fiction, and also some really interesting, insightful works of fiction. In my opinion, it's best to completely ignore everything that comes out of it, because it's so hard to tell whether it's true or not.

The things that you are most certain are true that come out of RT are often false.
