Hamas fighters landed in Israel using motorized paragliders.
The video is of an Egyptian military academy.
A Twitter account with the name of Jackson Hinkle shared a video seemingly depicting Hamas fighters using motorized paragliders to land in Israel as part of an unexpected series of attacks by the Palestinian militant group.
“If this much damage has been done by a few motorized paragliders and moped militias, I can’t imagine what will happen if this unfolds into a full-blown Arab conflict. Praying for peace,” he captioned the video.
However, if you look closely, the building of the Egyptian military academy can be seen in the video, which establishes that the video is not of the recent Israeli-Hamas conflict.

In light of the footage of the Egyptian military academy in the video, it’s clear that the video is fake and doesn’t show Hamas fighters or recent events from the Israel-Hamas conflict.
