CAIRO – 28 September 2020: A new fabricated video was published by the Qatari-owned Al Jazeera channel, changing a wedding celebration into an alleged demonstration against the government in Egypt.
An Egyptian Citizen Called Adel Ezelregal based in Dakahlia governorate wrote on his social media account, Sunday, that he was surprised to see himself in one of the videos as he was attending a wedding event in a nearby village; however, the video was fabricated with fake voices of chanting against president Sisi to seem like an angry protest, while it was actually a wedding.
He added, “Please take care of what is happening; The Muslim Brotherhoods are taking pictures of all social events and gatherings to install the demonstrations' sounds over it to use it again on social media as protests in Egypt.
This is however; not the first incident for Al Jazeera channel to fabricate videos and news about Egypt aiming at undermining the state and incite chaos in the country.
In September 25, Al Jazeera channel published a fake video claiming that dozens of people chanted against President Abdel Fattah El Sisi.
The Qatari channel’s fabricated coverage came within the anti-Egypt campaign that has been launched by Egyptian fugitive contractor Mohamed Ali, who incited the people to take to streets to protest against President Sisi on Friday.
Al Jazeera published footage showing people chant against President Sisi; however, AFP reported that that video is an old one and dated back to 2013, adding that the sound of the video was inserted.
The fabricated video also went viral on pro-Muslim Brotherhood trolls’ accounts on social media platforms and their channels.
