Israeli TV Channel 10 investigator Nitay Elboim has uncovered new information about the popular Jerusalem UFO videos taken in January of this year. The videos made headlines around the world, and many in the UFO community still talk about these controversial videos. However, this new information sheds further doubt on their authenticity. You can watch Nitay’s report in the YouTube video below.
The first video was taken by Eligael Gadliovich, and soon after three teenagers posted another video of what appears to be the same object. In these videos a light can be seen descending over the famous Dome of the Rock. It then flashes and speeds straight up and out of sight. The videos are very shocking and immediately became a hit. They were featured on news programs throughout the world.
During his investigation, Nitay discovered that Eligael is a filmmaker and actor with his own film production company. Nitay also found Golan Ardiv, a film teacher, among the actors in one of Eligael’s movies, and it just so happens that the teenagers who took the second video attend the school where Golan teaches. Although the makers of each video claimed not to know each other, this evidence made Nitay have doubts. He called Eligael to ask about his association with the teenagers.
Eligael was very cryptic in the call. When asked if this was all a coincidence, Eligael said he did not believe in coincidences and suggested that these connections may not be a coincidence. He then also mentions that he wanted to investigate the incident from a cinematic point of view. Nitay appeared confused by his statements and asked if Eligael felt there was a base for what Nitay was suggesting. At this point Eligael said he was too busy and he would have to go, but before ending the call he said that everything everyone was saying about the video was true. What he meant by that is unknown. Was this a confession of sorts? Either way, Eligael did seem to be caught off guard by Nitay’s discoveries.
Nitay was unable to reach Eligael again to get further clarification, but he was able to reach the film teacher, Golan. Golan said he was present when Eligael filmed the UFO, but that he didn’t know the teenagers. When asked if the teenagers went to the school where he taught, Golan changed his story and admitted that he did know them. Nitay then asked Golan if he had a chance to talk to the students about their UFO video. Golan said it has been busy since they are approaching final exams, so he hasn’t talked with them yet.
In summary, Nitay uncovered that Eligael is a filmmaker, the teenagers in the second video are film students and Golan not only knows them, but lied about his association with them. To Channel 10 this was enough for them to determine that the videos were not authentic, although they admit the motive behind the hoax is still not clear. They speculated that perhaps Eligael is going to use the video to help promote an upcoming film.
