Facebook and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg have been hit with a lawsuit seeking more than $US1 billion ($A963,298,329) in damages over a page on the social network which called for a "Third Intifada" against Israel.

Facebook this week shut down the "Third Intifada" page, which had almost 500,000 fans, but the lawsuit filed in a court in Washington claims that the social network showed "negligence" by not quickly responding to appeals to remove the page.

Besides awarding damages, the complaint calls on the court to bar Facebook "from allowing the Facebook page titled 'Third Palestinian Intifada', and other related and similar sites, which advocate violence and death to Jews".
