Israel-Palestine Conflict— Old Video Of Assad Militia Targeting Army Convoy Using Explosive Device in Syria, Falsely Being Linked To Hamas: Fact-Check

Just a few days ago, a video surfaced on social media, creating a stir among users during the Israel-Palestine Conflict. This video depicted an armed man recording from a moving vehicle as an explosion occurred in the background. The accompanying claims were alarming – it was being shared widely, alleging that Israel had targeted Hamas terrorists.

The video with these false claims quickly gained traction, spreading like wildfire on social media platforms. It was shared by multiple accounts, including @EretzIsrael, @OzraeliAvi, @wokeflix_, @FrontalForce and @RealBabaBanaras.

The Truth About The Video

Upon careful analysis, it becomes evident that the claims associated with this video are indeed misleading. The fact is that this video is not recent, nor does it have any connection to Israel or Hamas.

The video, dated back to 2019, originates from Syria. In this footage, the armed man records a scene from a moving vehicle, capturing an explosion in the background. However, this explosion was not an Israeli airstrike on Hamas militants. Instead, it was an incident in Syria where the Assad militia targeted an army convoy using an explosive device.
