Moroccan Army intervenes to establish Order in Guerguarat
Finally, after the dramatically escalating situation in Guerguarat Crossing, Morocco intervenes to establish order back in the region.
The Royal Armed Forces intervene in Guerguerat to secure the flow of goods and citizens after a siege that was implemented under the supervision of armed Separatist “Polisario” militia.
According to a statement issued by the General Command of the Royal Armed Forces, the Royal Armed Forces set up a security cordon in order to secure the flow of goods and citizens through Guerguerat crossing last Thursday night.
The statement pointed out that “after seizing about sixty people under the supervision of armed separatist “Polisario” in the road corridor that crosses the Guerguerat, which connects the Kingdom of Morocco and the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, and hindering passage of civilians and merchants, the Royal Armed Forces established a security cordon in order to secure the flow of goods and people across this axis”.
The statement added that this operation is “non-offensive and has no intention of attack, as it is carried out in accordance with clear engagement rules which require avoiding any contact with civilians and resorting to the use of weapons only for self-defense.”
