They are taking over the road and removing the Namazis from the road!! Hope to see this again Drama named “Boycott France” in some countries.”

Similarly, many other users also shared the video.

Fact Check

Using InVID tool and reverse image searching of screengrabs from the viral video we found the same video on the Youtube channel named Yüksekova Haber Portalı. The channel uploaded the video on November 9, 2012 whith a Turkish caption, “Gaz bombalı ‘sivil Cuma namazı – Yüksekova – Gever.” Moreover, the English translation of the caption is,”Civil Friday prayer with gas bombs – Yüksekova – Gever.”

Furthermore, while keyword research we found a Turkish Report of ilkehaber. The  publish date of the report was 9th November, 2012. And, the title of the report “civil Friday prayers”. The report covered a incident where prisoner sat on a hunger strike and police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse them. From the report we also got to know that Events took place between the crowd and the police in the Orman, Kışla, Cumhuriyet, Güngör, Kaniheyder and Esentepe neighborhoods of the district.
