CAIRO 25 September 2020: Aiming at undermining the state and incite chaos in Egypt, the Qatari-owned Al Jazeera channel published a fake video claiming that dozens of people chanted against President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on Friday.
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 on Friday video 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.
Meanwhile, the Coptic Orthodox Church in Giza denied the rumors that claimed any protests in Giza, saying that the report claiming that a protest started from Al-Ikhlas Church in Talbia district of Giza is groundless.

The fake project in Sant Adrià de Besòs city in Barcelona was based on three contracts valued at 200,000 euros, Jorro said.
