Syrian ‘Hero Boy’ Rescuing Girl During Shootout Is Fake

This week old video purportedly featuring a young Syrian boy saving a younger girl in distress during a shootout amid the raging civil war instantly went viral, and stands with over 3.3 million views! Countless copies of the video has spread across the Web with many more views. 

The only problem is, as is the case with so many viral videos these days, the entire clip was a fabrication, created by Norwegian filmmakers using professional actors on the set of The Gladiator.

The way the camera shakes so ‘realistically’ really gives it away. The director said he created the short film to spur conversation about the horrific war that’s been going on in Syria for so long now.
