Many are calling it propaganda.

Currently, the world has its focus on the Israel-Palestine conflict that has left thousands of innocents dead and at least 12,000 injured. Following Hamas‘ October 7 attack on Israel, reports of continuous retaliatory airstrikes have occurred over the last two weeks as the region goes through food, water, and electricity shortages.

One aspect of the coverage of the last two weeks’ events that have been continually criticized is the media coverage, as many online have reported inaccuracies with information shared even by state-run accounts.

Many have called out the usage of propaganda, especially content shared by the IDF (Israel Defense Force).

The IDF is the national military of Israel, staffed by conscription of men and women for 32 and 24 months, respectively. Through the years, those in the IDF have shared content many have found to be disrespectful in light of the shortages those in the Gaza Strip have been suffering though.
