In a recent broadcast aired on DMI – Dubai TV, a UAE newscaster is seen making statements and allegations against Qatar that are unequivocally false. As members of the community it is our responsibility to speak out against fake news that is being circulated to the world about Qatar and its role in the GCC crisis.

For those who don’t speak Arabic, here is our unofficial translation of the allegations being made in the above news-clip:

  • That Qataris are rising up in protest against the government of Qatar
  • That Qatar has set up checkpoints across the country to quell these alleged uprisings
  • That the Qatari government is using tear gas on its citizens who are protesting
  • That Turkish military troops have also gotten involved to subdue the clashes

We implore the Qatar community to share this article and speak out against the spread of fake news such as this.
