Check | Old, Unrelated Image Passed off as Iran Putting Its Military on High Alert

An image of several artillery guns lined up is being shared on the internet to claim that it shows a recent visual of Iran placing its military on high alert.

Social media users have shared the image with a caption that said, “#Iran has placed its entire military on full high alert. Donald Trump calls on Israel to end its war in Gaza. Because another genocide is coming, Iran and Israel will hit each other.”

The post had over 5 thousand views on the platform at the time of writing this report.

Are these claims true?: No, the image is old and unrelated to Iran. It dates back to April 2017 and shows North Korea performing a live fire drill to mark the 85th founding anniversary of its military.
