JERUSALEM (AP) -- The Israeli military says it has indicted more than 145 Palestinians so far this year for incitement over social media.

Sunday's announcement comes amid an Israeli campaign to stamp out the online incitement it says has fueled a yearlong campaign of Palestinian attacks. The Palestinians say the violence is a result of nearly 50 years of Israeli military occupation.

Earlier this month, a pair of Israeli ministers met with Facebook executives to discuss ways of limiting calls to violence on the platform. Israel says Facebook should do more to monitor and control content, raising a host of issues over whether the company is responsible for material posted by its users.

Israeli lawmakers have proposed legislation that seeks to force social networks to remove content Israel considers to be incitement.
