A Yemeni wedding video from 2020 is being falsely circulated on social media as an attack on the Amiri Diwan

A video circulating on social media that shows men firing from machine guns into the sky at night with a building in the background is from a Yemeni wedding in 2020 and is not a video showing protests at the Amiri Diwan against the Shura Council election to be held in Qatar in October 2021, as has been claimed by the World Council for Youth Twitter page:

The video posted by The World Council of Youth which claims to be "a non-governmental council that does not belong to any organisation and its personal funding," claims that tribes gathered to attack the Amiri Diwan and Al Jazeera did not cover the event. According to the Tweet, His Highness The Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani has also disappeared.

In fact, this video was taken at a Yemeni wedding ceremony in 2020 and the clip has been taken from YouTube and falsely attributed to protests by some tribes in Qatar against the Shura Council elections law.

The World Council of Youth has similarly been posting other videos about Qatar on its Twitter page which are fabricated and using hashtags like #ال_مره and #قطر_تنتفض #ال_مره_هل_قطر_قبل_الحكومه to make them viral.

Please note: before sharing videos or content from social media, please check the facts to make sure they are accurate. Spreading fake news can get you into serious trouble in Qatar and is against the law.
