A video is being shared on social media claiming it is a training video of the Indian army. This video shows a group of uniformed women soldiers jumping above a moving thread of blaze as part of their training. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

Claim: Training video of Indian army.

Fact: The video shared in the post shows an old training video of Sindh police women commandos in Pakistan. The video shared in the post is old and had nothing to do with India. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

On reverse image search of the screenshots in the video, a video with similar visuals is found published by a few Pakistani media channels and users in August 2019. They can be seen here and here. These social media pages shared the video describing it as a training video of Pakistani commandos.

When we searched for further sources, we found the same video on the Facebook page of a Pakistan-based news and media website, Karachi Walay. This news website published the video reporting it as the training visuals of Sindh women commandos in Pakistan. A few other news websites have also published the video with a similar description in 2019.

A few other training videos and pictures of women commandos in the Special Security Unit (SSU) Sindh Police can be seen here, here and here. From all these pieces of evidence, it can be concluded that the video shared in the post shows a training video of Pakistani women commandos, not of the Indian army.

Earlier, when similar unrelated videos were shared as training videos of the Indian army, FACTLY published fact-check articles debunking those claims. They can be seen here and here.

To sum it up, an old training video of Sindh police commandos in Pakistan is being shared as a training video of the Indian army.
