A video allegedly of IDF soldiers brutalizing a palestinian has been doing the rounds for a while, but getting much traction the last few days.

As usual, immediately upon seeing the video, I was skeptical as to its authenticity. Firstly, because the Israel haters and palestinians lie shamelessly. Secondly, because in this particular case, there is no sound, making my Spidey senses tingle even greater than normal.
And sure enough, the video has nothing to do with the IDF: it is video of Guatemalan army soldiers in 2015.
Note that the source video at the link contains audio. Whoever tried to pass this off as IDF soldiers deliberately removed this audio in order for their lie to gain traction.
Remember folks, treat everything coming out of their mouths with caution. Because almost always, it is a lie, and they feel the need to do it because they don’t have the truth on their side.
