Israel-Palestine War: In the ongoing war between Israel and Palestine, more than 6,000 people have lost their lives and buildings worth billions have been destroyed. While many people are in support of Israel in this war, many people have also come in support of Palestine. Now in this connection, a video is going viral on social media and a particular community living in India is being targeted. In the viral video, people can be seen rallying in support of Palestine and in this rally, they also have flags in their hands. Users are claiming that a rally was taken out in Kerala with the French flag in support of Gaza. The Indian Muslim community is being targeted by making this video viral.
Many users, including BJP leaders, are making this video viral with similar claims. While sharing the viral video, BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga wrote, "Supporters of Hamas terrorists gathered in Kerala, they waved the flag of Italy instead of the Palestine flag."
