Pro-regime social media pages shared a photo of a protest at the night and said it is for thousands of Turks protested in Istanbul against extremist religious classes in the Turkish curriculum.

Pages added that protesters held banners condemn the educational system and the new curriculum which was announced by Turkish education ministry and its decision to change majority of middle and high schools into religious schools.

During a search conducted by Verify-Sy this photo is old and was published by “al-Mogaz” website on July 2013 under the title “the real reason behind clashes in Turkey”.

Worth to mention that in July 2013 protests erupted in Turkey following protests in Istanbul against building a mall in Gezi park and was stopped by police with tear gas and water cannons.
