The left continues to spread misinformation. ‘Squad’ member slammed for pushing misinformation: Instinct was to ‘try to blame the Israelis’ Rep. Ilhan Omar retweeted a photo of dead children in Syria, not Gaza.

FOX News is reporting that Congresswoman Ilhan Omar retweeted a photo claiming that these were dead children that the IDF killed in the war against Hamas. But it actually was a picture from ten years ago taken in Syria. And it was a a 2013 sarin gas attack in Ghouta, Syria, and not from the Israel-Hamas war.

Even AOC knew it was false and posted this.

Fellow ‘Squad’ member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., warned about the “incredibly high” amount of misinformation on social media about the ongoing war and urged her followers to “pause” and “check” for verification.

“If you see a claim, photo, or video that triggers a strong emotional reaction, take a moment to pause and check for veracity/confirmation from multiple sources,” she wrote on X.

Omar has since un-retweeted the photo after criticism.
