Haters Try to Pass Off Grand Mosque Disaster as IDF Operation

A Facebook page called World Islamic Federation International (which I guess can be called WIFI for short) definitely has its wires crossed with this video post purporting to show those dastardly Zionists wreaking havoc on the poor palestinian Arabs (hat tip: Michal):

The video is not from Gaza or any of the other palestinian-Arab controlled territories but rather from the Grand Mosque disaster in Saudi Arabia in 2015, in which a huge red crane crashed into a part of the Grand Mosque as it was filled with worshippers, less than two weeks before the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

How do I know this? Look at the end of the video, particularly this scene:

You can see that navy blue and gold structure, as well as the cranes in the background, in the BBC video report of the disaster:

A cynical use of images from elsewhere in the world in order to demonize Israel. Must be a day ending in ‘y.’
