A video of several planes being transported on trucks is circulating on social media claiming it shows the evacuation of air bases in Israel after the Hamas attack on October 7, 2023. Fact-checking revealed that the video is older than October 7, and therefore has nothing to do with the attack.
After the attack of the militant group Hamas on Israel on October 7, a video is circulating on social networks that purports to show the evacuation of an Israeli air base as a result of these attacks.
The video shows a road where a number of cars pass. In it, two trucks carrying fighter jets are seen, and on two road signs are written the names of the places: Ar’ara Banegev and Arad.
However, using the image search engine Google Reverse Image Search, Faktoje discovered that the above video was posted on YouTube on September 19, 2023, at least two weeks before the October 7 Hamas attack.
In September, the Israeli Air Force held a joint exercise with the Hellenic Air Force in Greece.
Therefore, the above video is unrelated to the developments following the Hamas attack on October 7, 2023, and is taken out of context.
