Rabat- Unidentified people took down the national flag in Oujda, and replace it with a red flag emblazoned with the phrase “There is no God but Allah” (the Muslims profession of faith)on Thursday.
In a moment of negligence from the guards, unknown persons took down Morocco’s flag above the door of the Abdul Wahab historic commercial building in the heart of the city on Thursday. Instead they raised a red flag which said “There is no God but Allah, Allah is the greatest.”
According to the Moroccan daily newspaper Annas, this unprecedented incident caused a security alert in the local security services, which have since held many meetings in order to solve this puzzle.
According to the same source, the offenders are believed to be extremists, especially since this incident comes a few months after security discovered a terrorist cell recruiting young Moroccans to fight in Syria.
