A video is being circulated claiming “A US ship carrying F-16 fighter jets has reached Israel’s west coast.”.
A desert music festival near Gaza turned into a horror when Hamas militants stormed southern Israel on October 7, according to a media report 260 peoples were killed in the attack.
Inorder to verify the claim we performed a reverse image search on various search engines.
Through the utilization of reverse imaging techniques it was determined that the shared video dates back to Dec, 2022 from San Diego, USA as Navy Ships were about to collide. It does not show ships arriving on the coast of #Israel.
Our research confirmed that an old video from USA was shared with false context showing US Military support for Israel.
