Armed Spanish woman

This photo is often shared with caption: Spanish woman fighting for the Republican Loyalists in the Spanish Civil War. She is armed with a British Lee-Enfield.

The caption is totally false. This 1951 photo was taken by David Seymour. It shows a young girl preparing for sentry duty in Haifa, Israel. Source: Magnum Photos.
