Social media users have been sharing a video claiming to show Hamas ambushing Israeli tanks. One post reads, “The scene of the destruction of many Israeli tanks at the same time in the Gaza war Israel is facing heavy loss of life and property at the hands of al-Qassam Brigades.”
The video, though, is not genuine. The video is from ARMA 3, which is described as an “open-world army simulation,” according to the website of its developer, Bohemia Interactive. The video itself is taken from a longer YouTube video shared in late October.
“This video is a virtual game simulation. The battle simulation may differ from the actual one. We simulate articles that appear in the news. ARMA Game Play Video,” reads the video’s description.
