Fact Check: Video Of Tile-Breaking Tool Falsely Shared As IDF Method To Bury Terrorists In Tunnels 


Amid the ongoing Israel-Palestine war, a video showing a machine rigorously breaking a surface has gone viral on social media, claiming that it’s the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) method of burying terrorists in tunnels.

The video is shared on Facebook with a caption: “Another method by the IDF to bury terrorists in their tunnels”. 

Here’s the link to the above post


NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim, and found it to be FALSE. 

Running the video keyframes through a Reverse Image Search, the NM team found a YouTube video by Interesting Engineering, dated September 4, 2023, which describes that it showcases a unique device designed for removing old tile layers from a chimney.

Searching further, we found the same video uploaded on the official X handle of ‘World of Engineering’, dated November 8, 2023, with a caption: “Rotary tile breaking tool”. Other posts affirm that the video depicts a tool designed to expedite the removal of clay flue tiles. It is explicitly unrelated to the Israel-Hamas conflict.

Thus, it is evident from the above information that the viral video is unrelated to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
