Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar found the claim is misleading, as the video is made of two clips. The first was taken from a video posted in July 2019 of an attack by Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem.

The second clip is from a video showing riots between police and locals protesting against India's "Citizenship Amendment Act" that could strip Muslim Indians from their citizenships in the city of Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.
