Netizens demand Google to add Palestine in maps

A post is going viral these days that Google has removed Palestine from all online maps. The post has created an outrage among people and they demand Google add the state again in the maps.

Social media users shared screenshots of Google Maps that showed an outline of the map labeled “West Bank” and “Gaza Strip” as well as “Israel” labeled alongside them.

It was mentioned in the viral posts that Google and Apple maps no more include Palestine.

A similar post had gone viral in 2016 when users complained about the same thing. Google responded that the name ‘Palestine’ has never existed on its maps.

A Google spokesperson had said, “There has never been a ‘Palestine’ label on Google Maps.”

A spokeswoman said there was a bug that removed the label for “West Bank and “Gaza.”

“We’re working quickly to bring these labels back to the area,” she said.

Social media celebrity Waqar Zaka also joins the campaign.
