All Eyes on Rafah, An AI Generated Image Breaks Internet


SRINAGAR: An image has been going viral on social media for the past two days. The image reads, “All Eyes on Rafah.” The AI-generated image is being shared in stories by more than 40 million people on their Instagram handles. The campaign to share this image stemmed from the latest Israeli strike that killed more than forty Palestinians, including women and children, in Gaza’s Rafah area.

At least eight missiles hit Tal as-Sultan, an area in Rafah’s northwestern part, which was considered relatively safer. The area housed thousands of displaced Palestinians. Most of the tents in the area were damaged in the fire caused by the strikes, international media reported. Approximately 1.5 million displaced people were seeking refuge in the area.

NBC News quoted Matt Navarra, a social media consultant and industry analyst, saying, “It’s possibly circumventing some of the automated moderation on the platform because it’s an AI-generated image and there isn’t anything in there that is massively dangerous or controversial.”

“Pertinently, Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, has been accused of removing videos filmed by Palestinian journalists covering the Israeli carnage in Gaza,” TRT reported.

Organisations like Save the Children, Oxfam, Americans for Justice in Palestine Action, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign have previously used the slogan, “All Eyes on Rafah,” to protest against the invasion of Rafah city in Gaza.
