A video shows a Saudi cleric who was arrested for speaking about the war on Gaza.
A video of a man being forcibly removed from the stage at a mosque has been shared widely on social media recently.
Users are sharing the video and claiming that it is from Saudi Arabia, where a cleric was arrested for speaking about the war on Gaza.
Misbar investigated the circulating video and found the claim to be misleading.
The Video Has Nothing To Do With the War on Gaza
Misbar's team found that the viral video dates back toMarch 3, 2018. The video shows an elderly man being forcibly removed from the stage of a mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia. The man had attempted to deliver the sermon before Friday prayers, but was mentally ill and not authorized to do so. He was escorted off the stage by security personnel and worshipers, and was later handed over to his family for treatment.
Tragic Loss of Newborns in Gaza's Largest Hospital Amidst Israeli Attacks
According to the Ministry of Health, three infants have tragically lost their lives in the neonatal unit of Gaza's largest hospital. The hospital, currently surrounded and rendered "out of service" due to ongoing Israeli fire in the vicinity, is facing significant challenges, as reported by the Ministry of Health.
Dr. Munir Al-Bursh, the ministry's director-general, stated on Saturday that approximately 400 individuals were receiving medical treatment at the hospital. Additionally, around 20,000 displaced individuals sought shelter within the hospital complex. The situation has placed the hospital on the front line, subjecting its medical staff and patients to immense difficulties.
