Among the photos published by Turkish and Qatari media as a “team of 15 Saudis” who arrived in Istanbul to execute “Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance act”, an old picture of a Saudi tourist who visited Istanbul accompanied by his wife emerged, Al Arabiya English reported.
The exploitation of the Saudi tourist picture in the case of Khashoggi’s disappearance highlights the blatant misinformation in this issue, where photos of innocent civilians are used in a fictional story surrounding Khashoggi’s disappearance.
The picture is attributed to the Saudi citizen Salah al-Tabiki, and it was taken during a previous visit accompanied with his wife as tourists to Turkey.
