A third Royal Air Maroc plane arrived at Mohammed V International Airport from Sudan, with 154 Moroccan citizens and a Senegalese student on board.
A total of 293 Moroccans arrived Wednesday from Sudan on two RAM flights carrying 136 and 157 passengers respectively.
The evacuation operations of Moroccans from Sudan come in application of the high instructions of King Mohammed VI to ensure the repatriation of Moroccan nationals from this country in the best conditions.
On Monday, a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Living Abroad indicated that “following recent events in the Republic of Sudan and the deterioration of the security situation in this brotherly country , King Mohammed VI, gave his high instructions to ensure the repatriation of Moroccan nationals from this country”.
In accordance with royal instructions, the services of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco in Sudan, in a first phase, organized a land caravan from the capital Khartoum to the city of Port-Sudan, which benefited more than 200 Moroccan nationals established in Sudan or whose presence in this country coincided with this difficult internal situation, added the ministry, specifying that this terrestrial caravan arrived this Monday evening in complete safety in the city of Port-Sudan.
Since April 15, Sudan has been experiencing violent clashes between elements of the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), which have left hundreds dead and thousands injured.
