Was Israel just caught ordering its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Israel Caught Ordering Soldiers To Kill US Citizens!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed that Israel was just caught ordering its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine!

Here is an excerpt of the long and (intentionally?) confusing article. Feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : Israel Did Not Order Soldiers To Kill US Citizens!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Israel Did Not Order Soldiers To Kill US Citizens

Let me start by pointing out that Israel did not order its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine!

If that happened, it would have resulted in massive outrage in the United States, and reported widely by the mainstream media. Yet none of that happened … because it was made up!

Israel never authorised its soldiers to “detain and execute US citizens in Israel who show support for Palestine” as claimed by The People’s Voice.

Fact #2 : The People’s Voice Provided No Evidence

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided zero evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim that Israel ordered its soldiers to kill US citizens who support Palestine.

In fact, the The People’s Voice article only made that claim in its title, and the lede. After that, there was no mention of any Israeli order or permission for its soldiers to “detain and execute US citizens in Israel who show support for Palestine”.

Fact #3 : Omar Assad Died In The West Bank

It is odd that The People’s Voice article would mention Omar Assad since he was not arrested and executed in Israel. Omar Assad was detained and died in village of Jilijliya, which is located in the West Bank, north of Ramallah.

The West Bank is Palestinian, albeit under Israeli occupation and co-administered by Israel and the Palestinian National Authority (PNA). 99.3% of Jilijliya is classified as Area A, under PNA authority.

Fact #4 : Omar Assad Died In 2022

It is also odd that The People’s Voice article would mention Omar Assad since he died more than 2 years earlier, on 12 January 2022!

On that fateful day, members of the Netzah Yehuda Battalion detained 78 year-old Omar Assad, who was then handcuffed, gagged, and forced to lie on his stomach for up to an hour. He would end up dying from stress-induced cardiac arrest. It is unknown if they were aware that Assad was a US citizen.

Omar Assad’s death led the US State Department to take particular interest in the Netzah Yehuda Battalion. It not only sent Hady Amr – the American special representative for Palestinian affairs to visit Assad’s family, it also asked the US embassy in Israel to prepare a report on the battalion.

By November 2022, the Israeli military said it was preparing to indict two of its officers for Omar Assad’s death, and it moved the Netzah Yehuda battalion from the West Bank to the Golan Heights.

Finally, in June 2023, the Israeli military announced that it would punish the soldiers involved in Omar Assad’s detention, but will not charge them for his death as it was impossible to determine if his death was caused specifically by the soldiers’ conduct.

Fact #5 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
