A video shows an Israeli woman who was captivated and taken to Gaza.
Following the announcement of the kidnapping of Israelis by the Palestinian resistance during Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, a video circulated on social media featuring a smiling girl wandering with a mobile phone in hand, taking selfies with nearby people. Users claimed that this girl was one of the kidnapped individuals.
Misbar investigated the viral claim and found it to be misleading.
The girl is an Arab blogger and the clip has nothing to do with Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.
The Lady in the Clip Is A Palestinian Blogger, Not An Israeli Captive
Through a Google image search, Misbar’s team managed to get the Instagram account and YouTube channel of the girl in the clip. The girl is an Arab blogger and has an account on Instagram with the name, rosey.official1 with about 185K followers. She currently lives in Gaza.
On the day of the Operation, she shared stories filming the Palestinian rockets with supportive sentences for the Palestinian resistance.
She posted a video of Gaza’s sky filming the explosion sounds, proving that she is currently living in Gaza.
Moreover, She said in one of her stories on the day of the operation that she was going to cover the news herself.
Israel Declares War On Gaza
On Saturday, Hamas and other factions from the Palestinian resistance managed to infiltrate into Israeli colonies near the Gaza Strip, kidnapping and attacking the Israeli troops, making Saturday the deadliest day in decades for Israel. Accordingly, Israel declared war against Gaza. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Israelis to get ready for a long and difficult war.
The Israeli government decided to cut off the supply of electricity, fuel, and goods to Gaza and launched hundreds of airstrikes on the Gaza Strip, leveling up much of several towns in Gaza.
Palestine Losses During Operation Al-Aqsa Flood
On Wednesday, the Israeli army declared that since the beginning of the war on Saturday, Israelis have launched more than a thousand tons of explosives and missiles on targets of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas). The Israeli army also admitted that most of the targets were towers, residential buildings, civil facilities, and mosques, estimating that hundreds of civilians were killed because of that.
According to the latest statistics by the Red Cross in Gaza on Monday, October 9, the third day of the war, the losses of the Palestinian side are as follows: 493 were killed, 2751 were injured, and 150 residential buildings were destroyed.
