The Turkish Citizens’ Association (L’Assemblée Citoyenne des Originaires de Turquie – L’ACORT) in Paris was attached on 9 November 2020 and the message “Islam = Morte (death)” was sprayed on the walls of their building. This attack is one of the reflections of rising tension between the Turkish and French governments around the Islam religion.

“Although such an attack was not expected towards our Association, we have been worried for a year because hostility against to Muslims is on the rise” said the head of the Assembly, Ümit Metin.
