A video of a bulldozer dragging a man has been circulated, depicting a sensitive and unsettling incident from Gaza. It claims that Israel killed the man, a young Palestinian, and embedded the bulldozer’s teeth into his body in South Gaza.

Verified accounts on twitter, including Abdullahfakih (“@DrAbdullahAlfa3“) tweeted “#Israel KILLS THIS YOUNG #Palestinian MAN AND THEN EMBEDS TEETH OF THE BULLDOZER INTO HIS BODY IN SOUTH #GAZA #Israel is a Terrorist State” on Dec 19, 2023.

Several other accounts, including Sulaiman Ahmed (“@ShaykhSulaiman“), @Faisalations, NOC. (“@nocmedya“) also made the same claim that Israel killed the young Palestinian man and then embeds the bulldozer’s teeth into his body. The archive can be read from above.

The truth is that this is an old video of a Palestinian man who had been shot moments earlier being pulled along the border fence between Gaza and Israel in February 2020 by an Israeli bulldozer. Israeli Army opened fire on two Palestinian men suspected of placing a bomb next to the fence east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip. The two men were in the territory of Israel. He was a member of the Islamic terrorist organisation. The video is old and unrelated to the current conflict or the innocent Palestinian man.

Intent:

Propagandists are circulating old videos with false claims to set their propaganda against Israel over the ongoing war in Gaza. After proper research, analysis and fact-checking, we have discovered that this video, which dates back to 2020, shows an Israeli bulldozer pulling the lifeless body of a Palestinian who was shot moments earlier along the Gaza-Israel border fence. Israeli Army opened fire on two Palestinian men suspected of placing a bomb next to the fence east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip. Two men were on the Israeli territory. He was a member of the Islamic terrorist organisation. There is nothing to do with the ongoing conflict or the innocent Palestinian man in the video, and is not recent.

Conclusion:

Fact : The truth is that this is an old video of a Palestinian man who had been shot moments earlier being pulled along the border fence between Gaza and Israel in February 2020 by an Israeli bulldozer. Next to the fence East of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip, the Israeli Army opened fire on two Palestinian men who were allegedly planning to place a bomb there. The two men were in the territory of Israel. He was a member of the Islamic terrorist organisation. The video is old and unrelated to the current conflict or the innocent Palestinian man.
