A video, showing a child falling on a table surrounded by rubble when two men come in to help him get up and start laughing, is going viral.

Users are sharing the video to claim that this video is from Palestine and they are 'faking' getting injured during the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

The video shows a scene from a movie which was released in 2022.

How did we find out the truth?: On performing reverse image search on some of the keyframes of the video on Google, we came across a Facebook post from Mahmoud Maher Zaqout, a Palestinian videographer.

  • He had reshared the viral video shared by an Israeli diplomat and clarified that it shows a BTS clip from a movie that he shot in 2022.

This clarification was shared on 17 May 2024.

  • We also checked his Instagram account where he had uploaded the entire movie on 1 March 2022.

  • At 0:50 timestamp, you can see the same frame where the child falls down is being helped by others.

We also contacted Zaqout to learn more about this clip, who clarified that the claim is false.

He said, "This is a BTS clip from a movie shot in 2022."

Conclusion: A BTS clip shot for a film in 2022 is being falsely shared that Palestinians are faking their injuries.

(Note: This article was updated to include Zaqout's response.)
