The allegation that the video shows a teacher beating children in a daycare center in Turkey

CLAIM / Video: The teacher who beats children in a nursery in Turkey cannot be identified.

FALSE

A video that is spread on the social media and sent to teyit.org in a verification request is claimed to show a teacher beating children in a nursery in Turkey. It is also added that the identity of the teacher and the location of the daycare center are unknown. The video is shared on a Facebook page named “Adana” and received more than 25 thousand shares.

However, the allegation is not true. The video is from a nursery in China’s Huoqiu state.

Teacher suspended after incident

The scenes were shot by the security cameras of Sanliu Daycare Center in Huoqiu and uploaded to the internet on December 22, 2016. It can be seen in the video that the daycare teacher abuses children who are rehearsing for a dance show by hitting and kicking them.

Upon the complaint issued by the parents of the children, officials at Huoqui Education Office told the journalists that all the teachers involved in the matter are suspended after the incident.
