The official Fatah Facebook page was briefly closed by Facebook in late February 2017, and according to Fatah a post with this very image of Yasser Arafat holding a rifle was the reason for the closure. Nevertheless, the image was posted on the page again mere days after the page was reopened by Facebook.
