This Video Is Old and Was Not Taken in Sderot
The video was shot in June of last year (YouTube)

The Claim

A video shows a fire in a Sderot building that was recently targeted by Palestinian resistance rockets.

Emerging story

Social media users recently shared a video clip purporting to show a fire in a building in Sderot alleging that had recently been bombed by the Palestinian resistance.

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar investigated the claim and discovered it to be misleading. The video clip is old and was uploaded to YouTube on June 8 by a channel that only posted Hebrew-language news from Herzliya. The video shows a fire on the fourth floor of a building in the Herzliya Hills complex.

The clip circulating is not related to Sderot.

Misbar also analyzed the location of the building depicted in the video, as similarities were found between the building depicted in the video and those shown on the maps.
