Closure of Gulen-affiliated Schools in Morocco (in French)

Telquel.ma, an online news service in Morocco, published on 17 January 2017 an article titled "Qui tire les ficelles des ecoles Mohamed Al Fatih au Maroc? (Who pulls the strings on the Mohamed Al Fatih schools in Morocco)" by Thea Ollivier.

The article concerns the closure of the Gulen-affiliated schools in Morocco under pressure by the government of Turkey. This follows the earlier closure of the schools in the Gambia, Somalia, Sudan, and Ethiopia and is part of a Turkish government effort to shut down the Gulen Movement globally, alleging that it was behind the July 2016 failed coup attempt in Turkey.

My book, Hizmet in Africa: The Activities and Significance of the Gulen Movement, published in 2015 provides the background for these developments.
