Did an Israeli representative just TEAR UP a notice issued by the UN on Israel’s human rights violations in the 2023 Israel-Hamas War?!
Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Israel Envoy Tore Up UN Human Rights Notice!
People are sharing a video, which claimed to show an Israeli representative tearing up a 20-page notice that the UN issued to Israel for violating human rights during the Israel-Hamas War of October 2023.
Truth : Israel Envoy Tore UNHCR Report In 2021, Not 2023
We looked into the claim or suggestion that an Israeli representative tore up a notice that the UN issued to Israel for violating human rights, and here was what we found…
Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded In October 2021
The viral video is genuine, but it was recorded almost two years ago – on October 29, 2021.
This video has nothing to do with the October 2023 war between Israel and Hamas.
Fact #2 : It Was A Report, Not A Notice
The paper that was torn up in the viral video was not a notice that the UN issued to Israel for violating human rights. It was the UNHCR’s annual report.
Fact #3 : That Was Ambassador Gilad Erdan
The man in the video is Ambassador Gilad Erdan, who was addressing the UN General Assembly after the UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) issued its annual report.
In his speech, he said that the UN had a history of anti-Israel bias, and referred to the 1975 General Assembly resolution that labelled Zionism as “racism” – a designation that was only revoked in 1991.
And that was when Gilad Erdan tore a page (or two) from the UNHCR annual report.
Gilad Erdan himself posted a video of his speech on X (formerly Twitter), confirming both the date and the circumstances behind his actions.

Fact #4 : Gilad Erdan Spoke For More Than 2 Minutes
The message that accompanied the viral video claimed that Gilad tore the report in his 2-minute speech. This may seem like a small point, but even this point is categorically false.
The video that went viral WhatsApp and social media is only 28 seconds long, and Gilad Erdan himself posted a video clip that lasted 1 minute and 29 seconds.
However, there is a longer video of his speech lasting over 3 minutes. So we know for a fact that Gilad spoke for at least 3 minutes, if not longer.
Fact #5 : Israel Has Been Condemned Many Times
Frankly, that is hardly the first time that Israel was condemned by the Human Rights Council and/or UNHCR; and it was unlikely to be the last time either.
As Gilad Erdan pointed out in the longer version of his viral speech, Israel had been condemned by the Human Rights Council with 95 resolutions so far.
