Fact Check: Does This Viral Post Show A Protest March By The Israelis To Release POWs? Here’s The Truth


A video showing Israeli people conducting a March in the country demanding release of all the prisoners of war is doing the rounds on social media. A huge crowd can be seen walking on the streets with Israeli flags in their hands.

A Facebook user posted the viral post with a caption:
തടവുകാരെ മോചിപ്പിക്കാൻ ആവശ്യപ്പെട്ടുകൊണ്ട് ഇസ്രയേലിൽ മാർച്ച്
(English translation: March in Israel demanding the release of prisoners.)

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

Running a Reverse Image Search of the video keyframes, our team identified a tweet on an unverified profile, dated July 22, 2023. The post seems like a longer version of the viral clip, describing that Israelis protesting against the legal amendments that Benjamin Netanyahi’s government was trying to pass. 

Another YouTube video on the official channel of an Arab media outlet, Rajeen TV, dated July 22, 2023, and titled: تواصل التظاهرات في “إسرائيل” ضد إصلاحات نتنياهو (English: Demonstrations continue in “Israel” against Netanyahu’s reforms), also matches with the viral clip. But the date of posting of this video predates the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas. So, it cannot be linked to the Palestine crisis.

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post is misleading.
