This picture was published in 2015 by Arab media outlets to show the suffering of Syrian citizens caused by harsh weather, said the ministry in a statement, underlining that it has nothing to do with Morocco. 

The source noted the same photo was again posted, in an erroneous way, by some papers during the month of December 2016 and was refuted at the time by the interior ministry.
