Date:

A video showing a little girl fearlessly waving the flag of Palestine in front of armed soldiers is doing the rounds on social media. Many users have shared the image claiming that the Hamas extremists in Palestine are using children and women as human shields and making them stand in front of the Israeli army.  

A Facebook user posted the viral post with a caption: Israel-Hamas war have reached a point where Palestine is sending children to stop Israel army.
Seems like their terrorist men are hiding under bills.

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the viral post, and found it to be misleading.

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, our team traced a Facebook post, dated March 17, 2021, on the official handle of Days of Palestine — a Palestinian media organisation concerned with international media. We found many other posts from 2021 containing the same video, indicating that it has nothing to do with the ongoing war. 

According to the caption, the incident happened in Masafer Yatta, in the Israel-occupied West Bank region. 

Searching further, we came across an Instagram post on a profile named Eye on Palestine — a media organisation from Palestine. The video matches with the viral clip and the date of posting, confirming that it has been online since 2021. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming to show a little girl waving the Palestinian flag in front of Israeli soldiers amidst the ongoing war, is misleading.
