Minors are active users of cutting-edge communication technologies; joining virtual communities or messaging with remote users, they face numerous threats and risks. The Internet has an increasing population of websites and social media pages that seek to promote extremist and terrorist ideas and practices. Minors tend to lack the knowledge and skills for identification of destructive manipulations; when mingling with such communities, they risk devaluing their moral foundations, losing their family values, and degrading as personalities. Then they become involved with extremists and coerced to commit terrorist attacks. The state has undertaken to keep minors safe in cyberspace. However, digital technologies advance at a far greater pace than the legal frameworks to address the challenges they create.
