Gaza Supporters Flood Twitter, Social Media with Fake Photos
The BBC has warned that Palestinians in Gaza and their supporters are using false images on Twitter to garner sympathy for their cause.
Many of the images that supposedly show Gaza under bombardment over the past week are neither current nor from Gaza, the global news organization wrote.
“Some of the images are of the current situation in Gaza,” the BBC said, “but a #BBCtrending analysis has found that some date as far back as 2009 and others are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq.”
