The Cairo Tower in Egypt was lit up with the colors of the Palestinian flag.

The viral picture showing the colors of the Palestinian flag lit on the Cairo Tower is a morphed one.

The viral picture showing the colors of the Palestinian flag lit on the Cairo Tower is a morphed one.The violent clashes between Israel and Hamas ended after 11 days of the fight with a cease-fire agreement. Amid the tensions between the two countries, a post shared on social media stated that the Cairo Tower in Egypt was lit with colors of the Palestinian flag as a mark of support to Palestinians. Egypt played the role of a mediator between the two sides to end the clashes.

However, upon reverse image search, we found the image of Cairo Tower on Wikimedia Commons, the photo credited to Ahmedsantos. It features a violet color light, unlike the viral image. Further, we found the viral image in a blog post of Bulb America, an online bulb retailer. The blog mentions that the tower was adorned with LED lights upon request by the Egyptian government.

Thus it seems the viral image has been doctored to spread misinformation.
