A video is circulating in Israeli media which purports to show the surrender of some Hamas fighters. But critics say it is staged and have cast doubt on its authenticity. The footage comes as Hamas continues to resist Israel's relentless assault, more than nine weeks into the conflict. And Israel faces growing global condemnation for killing Palestinian civilians, as death toll reaches 18,000. So, is the video an attempt by Israel to deflect accusations of genocide in Gaza? And is it real or fake?
