The fact that "Egyptian fans supported the Moroccan team against Algeria" in the Arab Cup

The day after the match between Algeria and Morocco on December 11, in the Arab Cup quarter-finals, which ended with Algeria's victory, a post appeared on social media in Arabic that was said to show the Egyptians' support for Morocco during the match.

But the two images that make up the post are old and unrelated to this match.

The post includes two pictures, in which fans appear carrying banners that read on one, "Egypt is dear to Moroccans, Morocco is dear to Egyptians," and on the other, Egypt and Morocco are one people. "From yesterday's match," he wrote in the accompanying comment.

The circulation of the publication began after Algeria stripped Morocco of the Arab Cup in football, winning 5-3 on penalties, after a 2-2 draw on Saturday, in the quarter-finals of the Arab Cup in football, at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, in an exciting sports match that was not Interaction with it was far from politics, in light of the escalation of tension between the two neighbors over the Western Sahara file, according to "AFP."

Since last August, Algeria has severed its relations with the Kingdom of Morocco due to what it described as "hostile acts".

The visit of Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz to Morocco, a year after the conclusion of a peace agreement between the two countries, angered Algeria, which does not have any relations with Israel.

The inspection of each photo showed that they were published in 2019, and had nothing to do with the quarter-final match in the Arab Cup, which brought together Algeria and Morocco.

The first photo was taken during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, and it was published by Egyptian news sites at the time.

As for the second picture, distributed by Agence France-Presse on June 28, 2019, it shows Moroccan fans during a match in the African Nations Cup, which brought together the teams of Morocco and Ivory Coast at Al Salam Stadium in the Egyptian capital.

And on Wednesday night, the Algerian team, the African champion, excluded Qatar, the owner of the land and the Asian champion from the Arab Football Cup, by defeating it 2-1 in the Majnoon semi-final Wednesday, to join Tunisia, which preceded it, with an exciting victory over Egypt 1-0, to a final African match with distinction.
