Description of the fake LIE
Ukrainian television showed a story claiming that “foreign mercenaries,” who were actively sent by Western allies to join the Defence Forces, are currently leaving Ukraine and heading to Israel to participate in IDF operations in the Gaza Strip. This is spread by “z-channels” on Telegram.
The video is a fake, and the information in it is not true because there are no channel logo, the name of the correspondent, or any other data in the video.
“The perpetrators created the fake story based on a real one from the American news programme CBS Mornings ‘Israel prepares for ground invasion of Gaza after unprecedented Hamas attack’ dated October 9, 2023, in which they replaced the original audio track with their own recording,” the StopFake project investigators found.
