Fake Pallywood Images Dominate Social Media

by Mike Fegelman

According to the BBC, many of the photographs being circulated on social media about the recent conflict between Hamas and Israel, with the majority claimed to be from Gaza, are actually from years ago and are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq, Ynet News reports.

A significant part of any battle nowadays is waged in the media, as each sides tries to garner public support through the exploit of images and footage used to influence popular opinion.

A report by the BBC shows that Palestinian supporters are using fake images to illustrate the suffering in Gaza.

“Graphic images are being shared on social media to show how people have been affected by the renewed tensions between Israel and the Palestinians,” the BBC reported.
