Mass Surveillance Facial Recognition Program Reportedly Targets Palestinians in Gaza

2023-10-07

In Gaza, a previously undisclosed facial recognition program by Israeli forces is reportedly conducting mass surveillance on Palestinians in the wake of the October 7th Hamas attacks. The program, utilizing Corsight and Google Photos technologies, identifies individuals from crowds and drone footage. Allegedly, the technology often incorrectly flags civilians as militants, with one pronounced case being the poet Mosab Abu Toha on November 19, 2023.
