Fact Check: Does This Video Show An Israeli Woman Talking About Hamas’ Atrocities? Here’s The Truth


The video of a woman’s interview is widely circulated on social media, claiming that the Israeli woman, who was captured by Hamas, is now talking about atrocity committed by them. The post claims that she was starved for days and then tricked into eating her own one-year-old child.

The post reads:”इजराइली महिला ने बताया कि वह तीन दिनों से हमास के आतंकियों की कैद में थी । तीन दिन बाद वो मेरे लिए चावल और मीट की सब्जी खाने के लिए लाए । मै बहुत भूखी थी, मेरे खाने के बाद मुझे बताया की यह मीट की सब्जी तुम्हारे एक साल के उस बच्चे को काटकर बनाई गई थी, जिसे हमने तुमसे छीना था । हमासच्या क्रूर अतिरेक्यांच्या पाशवी अत्याचाराच्या कहाण्या. #viralvideo #viralseen #viralpost #viralreelsfb #trading #pakistanifashion #israil #india #hamas #fit #war #plaistin #uae” (English translation: The Israeli woman said that she was in captivity of Hamas terrorists for three days. After three days he brought me rice and meat curry to eat. I was starving. After I had eaten, I was told that this meat dish was prepared by cutting my one-year-old child, whom they had snatched from me. Stories of brutal excesses and brutal atrocities by Hamas.)

Here’s the link to the above post.


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

Noticing the logo of Memri TV on the top left corner of the clip, our team ran the video  keyframes through Reverse Image Search, and found a report in Washington Times, dated June 27, 2017, carrying the same video. The headline of the report reads: “Vian Dakhil on ISIS horror: Yazidi slave tricked into eating own child, 10-year-old raped to death.”

According to the report, Vian Dakhil is the Iraqi parliament’s only female Yazidi member.

We also found the same video shared on Twitter by Memri, dated June 26, 2017, with a caption: “Yazidi Iraqi MP Vian Dakhil Breaks Down in Tears Recounting Atrocities Committed by ISIS against Her People.”

The video also had English subtitles, showing Vian Dakhil talking about atrocities committed by the Islamic State terrorists. The same was also reported by other media outlets. The report can be seen here and here.

Thus, it is clear that the video is old and NOT related to the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.
