Many users on social media are claiming, “Pakistani Army Chief threatens to supply ballistic missiles to Palestinians if Israel begins a ground invasion of Gaza”.
Users who shared claim
Firstly, a verified X (Twitter) user named Hareem Shah shared a video and claimed “Pakistani Army Chief threatens to supply ballistic missiles to Palestinians if Israel begins a ground invasion of Gaza”. Following her footsteps, multiple users started sharing the same claim.
In the collage attached below, you’ll find the users’ screenshots who shared the video with similar claims.
To know the truth behind the viral claim, the DFRAC team checked the official account of the Pakistan Armed Forces on X (Formerly Twitter). No such announcement was found to match the viral claim.
We searched the related keywords on Google and no media coverage regarding the claim was found.
Reality of the video
Furthermore, When we investigated the video, we found that the video was shared on X by @OfficialDGISPR on May 23, 2019. The caption of the video was given as “Successful training launch of surface to surface ballistic missile Shaheen-II conducted. Capable of carrying both conventional & nuclear warheads upto a range of 1500 KMs. Shaheen-II fully meets Pak’s strat needs towards maintenance of desired deterrence stability in the region”.
Thus, it is clear from the DFRAC fact check that no official announcement was made by Pakistan’s Chief army about supplying ballistic missiles to Palestine. Hence, the viral claim is fake.
