The Israeli Occupation on February 4, 2024, posted a video on its official "X" account, showcasing its purported efforts to facilitate humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip.

However, subsequent investigations revealed that the footage used in the video was not related to Gaza at all. Instead, it depicted tents and equipment supposedly provided by the Israeli Occupation government, but the scenes were actually from a news report filmed in March 2022 along the border between Moldova and Ukraine, where Ukrainian refugees sought shelter.

Following the exposure of this discrepancy, the Israeli Occupation issued a clarification on its "X" account, acknowledging the error. They stated, "Yesterday, it was brought to our attention that one of our videos about humanitarian aid in Gaza featured a photo from Moldova."

The statement continued, "The photo was used for illustrative purposes, and we should have made that clear in the video."
