In his next tweet, he quoted Israeli media as saying that Iran plans to disrupt #FIFAWorldCup in Qatar. The only thing that keeps Iran behind is that it is unsure of the Qatari government’s ‘response’. 

Fact Check:

To analyze the reality of the viral claim the DFRAC team conducted a simple Google search to check the South Asia Index claim. During this time we found a report in Pakistan Today about this. In which the Pakistani Navy warship is confirmed to reach Qatar for the security of the World Cup.

Pakistan Navy Ship (PNS) Tabuk arrived at a port in Qatar on Tuesday to provide security assistance to the oil and gas-rich Sheikhdom hosting the FIFA World Cup, the report said. It also said Qatar has formally recruited security forces from 13 countries to assist local partners in ensuring a seamless World Cup. 

These include the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Jordan, Kuwait, the Palestinian Territory, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey, and the United States’ security missions. The report did not say anything about a possible Iran attack. 

Conclusion:

Therefore, it is clear from the fact check of DFRAC that the south Asia index’s claim of Sending warships to Pakistan to protect Qatar due to a possible attack by Iran is fake.
