A video circulating on social media falsely claims to show an Israeli woman who has escaped “Hamas militants”.
While the woman is speaking Arabic, English subtitles show her relaying the horrific treatment of other women supposedly by Hamas.
Several posts on Facebook and X (formerly Twitter) share the video with the caption: “She is an Israeli escaped from Hamas militants and interviewed by Middle East Media Research Institute Headquartered in Washington DC. Identity not disclosed by the MEMRI tv.”
However, the clip predates recent events in Israel and Gaza, and does not show an Israeli woman.
