Across social media, including Twitter and Facebook, this photo was circulated as an example of IDF brutality aimed at Palestinians living in the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip.

Close observation by current and former IDF personnel quickly identified the numerous reasons this photo could not be of an Israeli solider. The gun, shoes, and uniform do not match up.

The photo was originally uploaded onto Facebook by a user named Muhammad Abdullah.

The “Palestinians” claim that in this photo an israeli soldier is aiming his gun at a little girl… but look at the details. The uniform and shoes are not the kind that IDF soldiers have. The gun in the picture is an AK-47, the kind of gun the terror organization in Gaza posses. IDF soldiers carry a TAVOR or an M-16. …and most important of all…how come you cant see the face of this soldier in the picture??
