A video of a massive explosion started going viral on social media soon after a series of blasts were reported near Kabul airport on August 26,2021. The blast itself killed at least 70 people and turned the desperation witnessed at the airport to a scene of terror and chaos.

Many news reports and raw footage started to get used on social media platforms. One such video showed a massive blast with the video being taken from a very far distance.

Each version of the video posted at views ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 views. The maximum number of views garnered was on @vaibhavkaushiki tweet which as a whopping 3.3 lakh views.

Fact-check:

Upon reverse searching the key frames of the video, we were led to a news report written by BNO News that confirmed that the blast took place on August 26,2021 in Taraz, Kazakhstan. Several other news media outlets also reported the same.

FAKE





REAL

Therefore the claim that the video is of the Kabul airport blast is false.
