The claim regarding the location is incorrect, as rather than depicting the “gates to al-Aqsa” as Werleman claims, the video shows the exterior of the Damascus Gate, which is one of the entrances to the Old City of Jerusalem.
According to Odortec, the skunk water is a completely eco-friendly compound that is harmless in itself to people and the environment, and is made entirely of food-grade ingredients, notably yeast, baking powder and water, the BBC reported.
After coming under criticism for his claims, Werleman said that Damascus Gate is, in fact, the gate to al-Aqsa because it is the gate Palestinians use to enter the Old City to worship at the al-Aqsa mosque. He further added that skunk water is a “euphemism for a toxic waste water that takes on the smell and appearance of sewage.”
Want to spread false info on the Internet? A good case study is @cjwerleman‘s claim that 40% of Palestinian minors detained by Israeli security forces are raped, almost 100% tortured. Emulating this process, you too can also spread false info. Thread >>>https://t.co/3oPT8cngCT
