Fact Check: Post About Child Sleeping Next To Parents’ Grave In Palestine Is Fake


An image showing a child sleeping between two graves is being extensively circulated on social media. Many users claim that the child sleeps between the graves of his parents in the war-torn Gaza. Many have criticised Israel for its ruthless Gaza bombings. 

A Facebook user posted the viral post (archive link) with the following caption: He sleeps next to his parents’ grave. We will judge the Zionist responsible for the lie that they are chosen. Their works prove otherwise.

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

Running a Reverse Image Search of the viral picture, the NM team spotted an Instagram post on the official account of  Aziz Alotaibi — a Saudi Arabian photographer, dated January 7, 2014. In multiple comments, the photographer has clarified that the picture was fake and had nothing to do with the Israel-Palestine war. 

Searching further, we came across an interview with Aziz. In the interview, Aziz clarifies that the picture is fake, and not related to Syria. Also, the child’s parents are alive. 

Therefore, we can conclusively say that the viral post, claiming to show a boy sleeping next to the graves of his parents in Palestine, is false.
