BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – The Polisario Front News Agency said, “The Sahrawi People’s Liberation Army launched intense attacks on Moroccan army bases in the Al Mahbas, Hawza, Awsard and Al Farisiyah sectors, resulting in casualties.”

The Polisario agency said, “The political governorate of the Sahrawi People’s Liberation Army confirmed in a statement that several enemy sites have been attacked by our brave fighters along the Moroccan wall of shame,” noting that this comes in response to “the Moroccan army’s desperate adventure embodied in it.” A clear violation of the ceasefire agreement signed between the two parties to the conflict in the Guerguerat region.

The statement added , “As a result of this treacherous operation, the Lions of the Sahrawi People’s Liberation Army responded fiercely to the advancement of the hostile formation, and were able to secure and protect the movement of Sahrawi civil society groups that were in the same place.”

For his part, the Minister of Information of the Polisario Front, Hamada Salma, confirmed that the Moroccan recklessness in the Guerguerat region has returned the region to square one, stressing that the Sahrawi people are determined to extract their right to self-determination at all costs.

Hamada Salma said in his statements that “the Sahrawi people have lost their confidence in the ability of the United Nations to do justice to them and to establish their inalienable right to organize a free and fair referendum, to determine self-determination and end the last occupation on the African continent, according to what international legitimacy stipulates.”

He added, “The war imposed on us by the Moroccan occupation has begun, and things will not return to what they were without being deterred by the Moroccan regime, which is responsible throughout this period for obstructing a peaceful solution in the region.”

On Friday, Morocco announced that it had launched a military operation in the buffer zone in Guerguerat in Western Sahara, which is disputed with the Polisario Front, while the Polisario Front responded, considering that the operation ended the ceasefire between the two sides in effect for 30 years, and that “the war began.”

For those interested wikipedia has a suprisingly good pages on Morroco’s annexation of Western Sahara, the building of walls and the longest minefield in the world, the corruption of its king and it’s history of persecution of the Saharawis.

Yeah, Western Sahara should be returned to Spain and Morocco to France, end of the problem🤣. Except for Israel, Western countries should have waited 200-300 years more before considering decolonisations in the MENA🤣🤣🤣🤣

Don’t worry, the Polisario front are no angels too, they have serious records of human rights violations and were tooled by some foreign powers like the USSR and Algeria to wreak havoc on Morocco.

By essence, any “real” monarchy is corrupted, but… Show me any ME or African country that is not corrupted from the top to the bottom and I’ll have a big laugh about how naive you are!

The Polisario has its home base in the Tindouf refugee camps in Algeria and is only controlling the green area shown here :

Western Sahara is simply held hostage of the 58 years old cold war of Algeria on Morocco. It’s a BS conflict inherited from the Cold War as Algeria became a Soviet satellite in 1962 while Morocco was sticking with the West.

And since it’s mostly desert and Morocco has purchased many F-16 while there are relatively few Sarawis in the controlled areas, the biggest concentration being 90k in the Tindouf camp in Algeria, it shouldn’t be long before the Polisario Front gets crushed.
