Is the video released by India as an attack on Pakistan was an old video of Syria?




Nine people, including four Indian soldiers, were killed in an ambush by Pakistani troops on the border with Jammu and Kashmir. In retaliation, India launched attacks on Pakistani military bunkers. Videos of the Indian attack were released by the military and in the news.

In it, the English-language news outlet NDTV released a 5-second video titled “Video of Pakistan destroying bunkers by 3 rockets sent by India”.

However, many Indians on social networking sites, including Twitter, have accused NDTV of posting a fake video of the attack, not a video of India’s attack on Pakistan, but a screenshot of a terrorist attack in Syria in 2019. Also, people from Pakistan are sharing the same screenshot, including on Twitter, that India has released a fake video.

Those who spread rumors that Syria has released a video on the Indian side are only sharing the screenshot, not the video.
