Fact Check: Viral Post Showing Hamas Forcing Men In Gaza To Fight Against Israel Is Fake


A video showing a group of armed men forcefully entering one house and dragging a man out is doing the rounds on social media. Many users claim that Hamas enter the residential houses in Gaza and force them to fight against the Israeli Army.

A Facebook user posted the viral post with the following caption: Hamas is entering the homes of men in Gaza to drag them out and force them to fight against the Israeli Army, which is advancing in northern Gaza. It’s quite possible that these children will never see their father again. Hamas must be stopped! #HamasisISIS #HamasWarCrimes #hamassmurderers

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

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, the NM team identified a tweet, dated October 3, 2023, on an unverified handle. As per its description, the incident is from Al Mukalla, Yemen, when the UAE-backed security forces entered the homes of citizens, accusing them of being disruptive and not responding to the authorities. 

As the attack on Israel started on October 7, 2023, definitely the viral clip is not related to the ongoing Israel-Hamas war. 

Searching further, our team found another YouTube video uploaded by Yemeni News — a news outlet from Yemen, dated October 5, 2023, with a title: اقتحام فصائل إماراتيه لمنازل المواطنين في المكلا.. تثير غضب الرأي العام (English translation: Emirati factions storming citizens’ homes in Mukalla… arousing public anger).

The description of the video confirms that Emirati formations storming citizens’ homes in Mukalla, Yemen. Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post is fake.
