Al Mayadeen posted on their page that Fadl Shaker has been arrested by the Army intelligence, a news which was shared by Lebanonfiles and included a picture of Fadl Shaker inside his cell.

The news turned out to be unfortunately wrong and the picture a fake one, and so both sources removed them.

This is not the first time fake pictures are shared on Lebanese media outlets, so here’s a link I posted few months back on [how to verify if a picture is false or not]. It’s very simple and could avoid the embarrassment of having to delete the news later on. It took me 30 seconds to realize the picture is a fake one so it’s not that time-consuming specially when your credibility is at stake.
