Four armed separatists were killed on Friday after they approached the security barrier in Morocco, according to informed sources who spoke to MoroccoLatestNews AR.
The separatists were led by Ali Hamoudi, a field commander and member of the Polisario Front’s National Secretariat. They were killed by a drone strike after they tried to approach Moroccan army positions..
Morocco has reaffirmed its attachment to the ceasefire, while reserving the right to react with “the greatest severity” against any threat to its security, according to Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad Nasser Bourita.
The minister recalled that since 2016, the “Polisario” militias have repeatedly carried out illegal acts, in particular the racketeering and banditry in the buffer zone of El Guerguarat and east of the defense wall, in violation of agreements and in blatant disregard of calls to order by the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council resolutions.
