Social media news pages and personal accounts shared a video showing dozens of people gathering in a street while someone is talking in Turkish.

The pages and accounts shared the video and said in the description “protests against the oppressor and AKP in Turkey” saying that the video shows protests against Turkish President Erdogan and his party.

Verify-Sy searched for the source of this claim and it turns out that this video shows when supporters of Trabzon Spor club attacked a shop of Galatasaray football club in Istiklal street in Istanbul, hours before the match between Trabzon Spor against Besiktas which ended 2-2.

The girl in the video is saying in Turkish “it appeared something will happened today, they are closing the shop but what’s happening for who are inside it!”
