Al Mayadeen statement on disinformation attributed to the network
Al Mayadeen denies circulated news attributed to it reporting that Hezbollah has called on the Lebanese army and UNIFIL peacekeepers to evacuate their positions.
Propaganda tools affiliated with different media platforms have started manufacturing and propagating fake news while citing Al Mayadeen as a source.
The circulating news, citing Al Mayadeen as a source, reporting that Hezbollah has called on the Lebanese army and UNIFIL peacekeepers to evacuate their positions along the southern Lebanese borders, is fabricated.
Al Mayadeen Media Network urges all its followers to obtain its news from the original verified platforms: the official websites, social platforms, television station, and verified official accounts.
The Network kindly requests that activists and followers not recklessly spread any information attributed to Al Mayadeen without referring back to the verified and official platforms.
It also warns media outlets, websites, and accounts, associated with promoting fake news and falsely attributing them to Al Mayadeen, of legal action and public disclosure.
Palestine, Lebanon, and the region as a whole are going through delicate and dangerous situations that are extremely sensitive. Hence, this requires all of us to handle news responsibly.
Al Mayadeen acknowledges that such complex situations breed misinformation. Stunts of media, psychological, and intelligence warfare proliferate in such situations, especially against professional media supporting the rights of the Palestinian people.
The Network is committed to providing the public with accurate, honest, and trustworthy information that triumphs the nation and its rights and does not hinder or betray it in any way.
