After the decision of the Turkish authorities Cease the Brotherhood’s media activities From its territory, and the subsequent instructions to a number of the group’s broadcasters to stop all their media activities on social media, the group decided to dissolve its office in Turkey, as well as the Brotherhood’s Shura Council.

The source confirmed that Ibrahim Munir, the group’s acting general guide, decided to dissolve the Brotherhood’s administrative office in Turkey, and the group’s Shura Council, while postponing the elections, which were scheduled to take place during the month of July, for another 6 months.
The Brotherhood had planned to transfer its satellite channels directed to Egypt outside Turkey within a period not exceeding 3 months, as the group decided to transfer the “Watan” satellite channel, wholly owned by it, and merge it with the “Al-Hiwar” satellite channel, which is run by the Palestinian Brotherhood, Azzam Al-Tamimi from London.
