Israel-Hamas War Updates: Video of Israeli Soldiers Toying Around Women’s Lingerie Goes Viral

Gaza is currently the storehouse of heightened tensions. Amid many controversies, a post sharing videos and photos of Israeli soldiers allegedly holding women’s lingerie has gone viral. 

As per Financial Express, the pictures and videos have sparked mass outrage among the social media platform users as they purportedly featured “soldiers handling women’s lingerie found in Palestinian homes.”

The post has drawn condemnation from human rights organizations and Palestinian homes. 

According to Reuters, this video is considered one of many posts showcasing Israeli troops in Gaza displaying mannequins and lingerie. 

A self-described reporter from Palestine, Younis Tirawi, promoted further investigation and scrutiny by reposting many of these images. 

According to TimesNow, Reuters verified a total of eight of these posts on various social media platforms such as YouTube and Instagram. 

A spokesperson for the UN Human Rights Office, Ravina Shamdasani, called this act of sharing images “demeaning to Palestinian women, and all women.”
