The National Moon-Sighting Commission of Sénégal (Commission nationale d'observation du croissant lunaire - CNOCL) has announced that the upcoming Aid El Fitr (End of Ramadan) annual non-working public holiday of Senegal would be on Friday, June 15, 2018.

Contrary to what often happens (2015-09-17, 2014-09-26, 2013-10-09, 2011-08-30 and 2007-12-18), all Senegalese Muslim communities, including the Coordination des musulmans de Dakar, have announced that they would follow the recommendations of the CNOCL, possibly as these are in agreement with the date announced by Saudi Arabia, this year.
