A video is being shared on social media in which a rocket can be seen crashing seconds after taking off and the claims are being made that the video is of a Pakistan missile test, which they failed for the 13th time.
” पाकिस्तान की गजनवी मिसाइल का 13वां टेस्ट भी फेल. 300 Km मार करने वाली मिसाइल 36 Km पर गिरी” the text claimed.

NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found the claim to be fake.
On taking out the keyframes of the video and putting it through Reverse Image Search, we found that the video is from Russia.
We found a video uploaded by Euro News on July 2, 2013, titled “Russian Proton-M rocket crashes, explodes after the launch failure.”

The description of the video read, ” An unmanned Russian rocket carrying three navigation satellites has crashed to earth. A state-run television station captured the moment. Within seconds of blast-off it was clear the Proton-M booster rocket was in trouble as it veered off course. ” You can read the full report here.
The above information proves that video is old and is not from Pakistan but Russia and hence the claim is false.
