Police Surround Afghan-Turk School in Kabul

KABUL – Afghan police surrounded the Afghan-Turk High School building in the capital Kabul early on Friday morning.
Kabul police forces did not allow anyone to enter or leave the school premises.
According to the police, they have orders to hand over the school to the Turkish government.
Meanwhile, a number of protesting students and teachers outside the school told that they would not allow the Afghan government to transfer the Afghan-Turk school to Turkey’s Maarif Foundation.
In February 2018, Afghanistan’s Ministry of Education (MoE) formally handed over the management of such schools from Cag Educational to the Turkish government.
Turkey claimed that the schools were related to a terrorist organization run by Turkish cleric Muhammed Fethullah Gülen, who is now living in exile in the United States.
