– As journalists, analysts berate British media for fuelling war in favour of Israel with fake reports
The Israeli army has no information confirming allegations that “Hamas beheaded babies,” Israeli army spokesperson unit told Anadolu on Tuesday.
It was alleged that Hamas’s armed wing, the Qassam Brigades, “beheaded many Israeli babies” on the Israeli side during the early Saturday morning attack launched from Gaza.
When Anadolu contacted the Israeli army spokesperson unit over the phone and asked about the allegations, she said “We have seen the news, but we do not have any details or confirmation about that.”
The situation escalated with a Saturday surprise attack from Palestinian group Hamas in the Gaza Strip on southern Israeli towns. Israel retaliated with massive airstrikes in Gaza and placed the enclave under total blockade.
More than 1,900 people have so far been killed in the violence, including at least 900 Palestinians and 1,000 Israelis, according to authorities.
Israel has also cut water and electricity supplies to Gaza, worsening the blockaded enclave’s already dire humanitarian situation.
Home to nearly 2.2 million people, the Gaza Strip has already been reeling under a crippling Israeli siege since 2007.
Some journalists and analysts have gone to social media to debunk the report. One said, “There’s video proof of dead palestinian babies being pulled out the rubble in gaza all over twitter. Not a single british newspaper went with that as their front cover. they all went for the already contested and unverified claim of “40 beheaded babies.”

THIS IS HOW PROPAGANDA WORKS. JOURNALISTS, UNFORTUNATELY ARE FURTHERING FUELING THE WAR. This story of '40 babies being beheaded' has now been shared on front pages only News Papers across the world. But this tweet will hardly reach to less than 1% of people who read front page.… pic.twitter.com/JA2lO8Pwwn

🔴 Beware of misinformation.
A reporter claimed that Hamas beheaded 40 Israeli children without any evidence! The news spread like wildfire. Her source is an anonymous Israeli soldier who spoke to i24 News !
The claim was further spread by Indian trolls & pro-Israel figures !! pic.twitter.com/KCRcREaC8M

London newspaper this morning, they are pushing the narrative of the "40 beheaded babies", which was proving to be not true.
And they portray this IOF with a dog as if they are heroes; the propaganda is insane to justify a potential genocide. pic.twitter.com/d7HgEv0ZBD

There it is: The reporter who broke the “40 beheaded babies” story admits her source is Israeli soldiers who “believe” it happened. They’re not even claiming to be sure.
She has no evidence.

There is no real evidence that Palestinians beheaded 40 children or raped women. But there is a lot of evidence and testimony from Israelis documenting their commission of these crimes against Palestinians.#GazaUnderAttack pic.twitter.com/pwx0edP5nr

I just wanted to clarify that I did not tweet 40 babies had been beheaded. I tweeted that foreign media had been told women and children had been decapitated but we had not been shown bodies – which was my response to reports which had gone viral about the 40 babies. I realised… pic.twitter.com/RMYBSJ8BhL

This is how war Propaganda works.
Zionists spread FAKE NEWS about 40 babies beheaded, entire western media broadcasted it and printed on front page.
That's how they are demonizing Palestinians and portraying Israel as victim in front of the world. pic.twitter.com/h3qizLeACl
