A fictitious image purporting to show that Israel lost contact with forces trying to enter Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza is making the rounds, indicating Mujahid’s victory.

Verified accounts on twitter, including Wajidkhan (“@realwajidkhan“) claimed that Israeli graves will be constructed inside Gaza, according to Mujahid’s previous declaration, if the Israeli army enters Gaza.According to him, the statement made is true. He added, Hamas says, “With the help of Allah, al-Qassam killed, wounded and captured an entire elite unit of the Zionist army”. The user shared the picture on his post and also wrote “”Israeli forces lose contact with forces attempting to enter Beit Hanoun in northern Gaza”. The post was made on Oct 28, 2023, which reached to an almost 115k user accounts on X. The archive can be read from above.

Mr_CooL (“@MR_CooL77777“) tweeted “In the last thirty-six hours #Gaza more than 30 #Israeli armored vehicles have been blown up in Khan Yunis and north-western areas of Patti #Hamas There is armed, public resistance throughout #Palestine . The youth are successfully fighting the tanks with molotov cocktail and local explosives. The impossible is becoming possible. On the other hand, especially in Israel, the people are even protesting in front of #Netanyahu ‘s house. They believe that @netanyahu are unsuccessful in the war and are not doing anything for the release of the hostages. Whether the media shows it or not, the equations in the ground battle have changed! #Palestine#Genocide_in_Gaza#ولعت#هجوم_العمالقة#HappyBirthdayKingKohli#CeasefireForGazaNOW#PAKvsNZ“.

What is The Actual Truth About the Incident? : Fact

In actuality, this picture was taken in November 2013. It is not from the current conflict between Israel and Palestine.

Five soldiers were injured and four Hamas gunmen were killed when an explosive device planted by Hamas blew up. The IDF was there to demolish a tunnel that was located within the Gaza Strip.

We visited THE TIMES OF ISRAEL, who published an article on this incident on Nov 1, 2013. The same picture was attached in the article with the headline “4 Hamas gunmen killed, 5 soldiers injured in clash at ‘terror tunnel’ “. On October 31, 2013, wounded Israeli soldiers were brought to the Soroka hospital in Beersheba. Five soldiers were killed, according to the IDF, when an explosive device exploded while forces were removing a tunnel that Hamas had dug into Israel from the Gaza Strip.
