Turkey: Allegations of hospital bombing by Turkish planes unfounded

The Center for Combating Disinformation under the Turkish Presidency’s Communications Directorate has announced that the allegations that Turkish warplanes bombed a hospital in Syria’s Derik region are untrue.

ANKARA (IGFA) – The Counter Disinformation Center of the Presidential Communications Directorate has published the 93rd issue of its Disinformation Bulletin.

The bulletin stated that the claim “Turkish warplanes bombed a hospital in Syria’s Derik region” shared by accounts spreading propaganda for the terrorist organization PKK/YPG is not true.

In the bulletin, it was emphasized that the Turkish Armed Forces took every precaution to prevent any harm to innocent civilians, friendly elements, historical and cultural assets and the environment during the air strikes against the PKK/YPG terrorist organization in Syria.

In the bulletin, it was requested not to rely on the manipulations of terrorist organizations.

In the bulletin, it was stated that the claim that “Egyptian police opened fire on a large number of Israelis fleeing from Israel to Egypt” regarding some images shared on social media is not true, and that the alleged images show a clash between Israeli forces and resistance fighters affiliated with the Izzeddin al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, near Ashkelon.

When the footage is analyzed, it is clearly seen that the soldiers clashing on the road are Israeli soldiers, the bulletin said, “The alleged footage has nothing to do with the attack that killed 3 people in Egypt. A police officer opened fire at a tourist group in a protected area in Alexandria, Egypt, and as a result of the attack, 2 Israeli tourists and an Egyptian tour guide lost their lives.”

In the bulletin, some social media accounts shared, “A policeman in Egypt attacked a bus carrying Israelis with his gun. 6 people were killed and 8 people were injured.” It was also stated that the claim was not true.
