The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit released on Sunday a third video which disproves the lies disseminated by Hamas during Operation Pillar of Defense.

The lies mentioned in the latest video include Hamas’ false claims that a rocket it fired hit the city of Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv, and that the Ben Gurion Airport had forced to relocate because it is under threat from Hamas rockets.

In two videos released earlier, the IDF disproved Hamas’ lies about hitting Tel Aviv and the Knesset, as well as its claims to have hit IDF warships and fighter jets.

Hamas staged for foreign media a man supposedly wounded and being hauled away into an ambulance, but the same man was seen minutes later walking on his own, as seen here. The BBC featured both shots and was shown up by HonestReporting.

On Sunday morning, several foreign media outlets continued to repeat Hamas propaganda and reported a claim by health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra that at least six journalists had been wounded in an Israeli attack on a media center in Gaza City.

However, an IDF spokeswoman told Arutz Sheva that no journalists were wounded in the aerial attack.
