“Polisario” Gangs attack Moroccan Consulate in Spain
Spain unequivocally condemns the Polisario militia that adopts a "gang" strategy while attacking Moroccan Consulate on Spanish land.
Separatist “Polisario” Front Gang attacks the Moroccan General Consulate in Valencia by lowering the Moroccan flag over the embassy building, located in the eastern part of Spain.
A video recording, widely shared by social media users, showed the separatist front’s Gangs as they were about to take off the Moroccan flag from the ministry building and place a fake “flag” of the front.
Moroccan activists in Spain recorded the inability of the Spanish authorities to protect the Moroccan diplomatic missions, and they considered it clear negligence in light of the increasing irresponsible acts of sabotage of the “Polisario” Gangs, whereas according to the Vienna Treaty, the Spanish side is responsible to protect diplomatic missions and the health safety of Moroccan diplomats.
The front carries on its provocative and reckless acts which makes the situation more complicated despite the international community’s condemnation of its actions and its affirmation of support for the Moroccan proposal.
A number of Moroccan activists condemned the Polisario’s continuous escalation and attempts to strike the efforts made to resolve the invented conflict, as they compared the strategy that the separatist front used to a “gang” in attacking Moroccan diplomatic missions. Thus, Moroccan human right activists demanded that Spain open an investigation concerning the event, revealing the truth behind the video, and punishing the perpetrators.
