An old YouTube video of Palestinian actor from Qatar is falsely shared as recent

Claim

He’s done it again! Mr. Pallywood (aka #MrFAFO) has turned up in…Qatar. After posing in a dozen different jobs, adopting all the orphans in Gaza, dying and coming back to life more times than I can count, he is now living his best life in Qatar.

Explanation

Hundreds of civilians were killed when the Palestinian Islamist organization Hamas launched surprise attacks against Israel from the Gaza Strip on October 7, 2023. In retaliation, Israel declared war on Hamas and launched an air and ground assault on Gaza, which has killed more Palestinians to date. Viral claims that associate it with the current state of warfare have been all over the internet since the conflict started.

In this case, the 58-second video shows a man who seems vlogging himself in an airport with a happy face in the camera. Looks like he also says hello from Qatar to his viewers. Here the user claims the man to be Mr.Pallywood and he has been posing in different jobs, adopting all the orphans in Gaza, dying and coming back to life many times, and now is living his best life in Qatar. Come on, let’s check how much truth the claim holds.

What’s the truth?

While analyzing the keyframes of the viral video, we found that the original video was uploaded by the YouTube channel namely ‘Saleh Aljafara’ on 22 January 2023. The video was titled in Arabic “The first flight in my life to…?” When we checked the description box of the YouTube it says that his name is Saleh Amer-Al-Jaafrawi, 26 years old, a Palestinian living in Gaza.

Compared to the viral clip, the YouTube video is longer, clocking in at 8 minutes and 47 seconds. Upon viewing the entire video, we discovered that the viral segment was captured beginning at approximately 7 minutes and 2 seconds and extending for the subsequent 58 seconds.

This makes it even clearer that a tiny portion of the 10-month-old video of the Palestinian actor is being taken and shared with misleading narratives.

Conclusion:

Therefore, we conclude that the claim Mr. Pallywood showed up in Qatar and was living his best life, is completely false. The shared video is, in fact, not recent; it dates back to early January.
