Deleted-then-re-uploaded video shows unlocked, fully-charged laptop with IDF-standardised marker number and alleged Hebrew letter keys, showing IDF image of captured-and-released soldier
The IDF released a version of its propaganda video shot in Gaza’s Al Shifa hospital, with unblurred footage that contradicts the IDF spokesman’s narrative and appears to show an IDF laptop, according to analysis by media company HotSpot, which appears to have been the first to spot the blunder. The tweet was subsequently deleted by the IDF and replaced with a version in which the laptop was blurred out.
The footage of the laptop is narrated as showing an incriminating Hamas laptop – but the fully-charged machine has a charger with a label marking it ‘QI-148’, apparently compatible with the IDF’s standard numbering of electronic items, and is fully charged in a hospital that has been without power for an extended period:
Some observers have said that the unblurred keyboard has letter keys in Hebrew – a Hebrew keyboard of the same model is shown in the final image of the group below – not Arabic.
The image of an IDF soldier taken hostage and subsequently released, a Private Megidish, that appears on the laptop screen – apparently supposed to be an image of her taken by captives – also matches an image released to western media by the IDF:
The occupation regime wants to convince the world that the hospital housed a Hamas headquarters, to justify its bombing of Gaza’s hospitals, killed hundreds or even thousands of hospital staff and civilians as part of its ethnic cleansing of the territory.
Previously-released footage showed a different IDF spokesman pointing to a chart he said showed a Hamas terrorist schedule in Arabic – but Arabic speakers quickly pointed out it showed only the days of the week – and displaying a handful of guns in pristine condition.
As one commenter pointed out, according to the IDF, Hamas bases have IT departments that put standard numbers on their electronic equipment that the IDF needs to blur out.
The IDF’s attempts to persuade the world that missiles hitting hospitals were Hamas misfires have also been thoroughly debunked by specialist sound and video analysts – and a Netanyahu staffer also boasted about the IDF’s involvement in a tweet that was quickly deleted when the narrative of the misfire was circulated.
After ordering Gazans to move to the south of the country or be bombed – and bombing them there too – Israel has now ordered them to evacuate parts of the south as well. Leaked documents and statements by Israeli government ministers show plans to clear Gaza entirely and force what remains of the population over the border into Egypt to a permanent ‘tent city’.
