A video purporting to show Israel bombing its own civilians in a recent incident is making the rounds.

Verified accounts on twitter, including @Partisangirl claimed in a twitter post that Israel acknowledges that while fleeing the Supernova music festival, its own citizens were shot at by Apache helicopters. The user also added the statement “The pilots realised that there was tremendous difficulty in distinguishing within the occupied outposts and settlements who was a terrorist and who was a soldier or civilian… The rate of fire against the thousands of terrorists was tremendous at first, and only at a certain point did the pilots begin to slow down the attacks and carefully select the targets.” The tweet post was made on Nov 9, 2023, which has received an about 30.1M views on X.

Several other accounts, including @jacksonhinklle also shared the incident and claimed that Israel bombed its own civilians and acknowledges it. The incident was claimed to be as recent. The archive can be read from above.
